Art Leroldi is widowed and fading - a small time Reno barber stuck in a rut of haircuts and horse-books. When he loses his cutting partner of twenty years, he's faced with closing Reno's last man's man barbershop or hiring the last person on earth he'd ever want working there - a woman. More specifically, Gloria MacIntyre, a broke, spit-fire young woman suddenly unable to take no for answer. This is the story two unlikely people, who meet in one unlikely place - The Village Barbershop. Written by
When Art Leroldi pulls up to his store in his classic Mustang where Gloria has parked her trailer in his parking spot, one frame has the car parked at an angle. Next frame has it pulled in straight. See more »
This film tied for the audience award at Cinequest and this film was one of four films I managed to catch while at the festival. It's a decent little flick and the acting was fine, but for some reason every time I watch John Ratzenberger I can't help but think about Cliff from Cheers. Shelly Cole did an amazing job and I always liked her from Gilmore Girls. The story is supposed to take place in Reno, Nevada but the filmmakers use parts of Napa Valley to double which I could always tell which location they we're shooting in. In the end, it was just alright and semi- entertaining. The average film goer will probably like it.
