Storyline

Thirty-something Audrey Brodsky, (Tegan Ashton Cohan) will do just about anything to find her big break in Hollywood. Encouraged by her mother (Jesse Meriwether) from a young age, little Audrey (Ilana Klusky) makes a grave-side promise to become an actress. She grows up, moves to Hollywood, and has great success! ...working 40 hours a week at an office job she hates. Audrey finds camaraderie with "the Angels", an empowerment group of five girlfriends who encourage one another through tough love. Here we meet fellow Angel Sammy (director/actress Cindy Baer) who is also stuck but in a different way. She is obsessed with a movie she directed ten years ago, which is a nod to Baer's real-life directorial debut Purgatory House (2004). When Audrey finally quits her job antics ensue as she fumbles to create her new life. She hires a camera crew which consists solely solely of one man, who is known only as "Camera One" (Matthew Kevin Anderson), and she moves in with happy-go-lucky roommate ...

Annoying little film
16 November 2015 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Odd Brodsky (2013) was co-written and directed by Cindy Baer. It stars Tegan Ashton Cohan as Audrey Brodsky, who is tired of her tedious office job and longs to succeed in Hollywood. The problem is that she has no talent. However, she does have ideas for self-promotion, including hiring a camera person "Camera One" to follow her around and film her life for a reality program. (Matthew Kevin Anderson does a good job as the loyal Camera One, while Scotty Dickert plays Spuds, a man with a gorgeous face and body, but no brains at all.)

The movie is scattered in every direction, with plots coming in and out more or less at random. I could see that director Baer was aiming for cute and quirky, but I think she missed those targets.

We saw the film at the excellent Little Theatre, as part of the Rochester High Falls Film Festival. It will work just as well on the small screen, if you have nothing better to watch. Incidentally, it was made by a woman, and stars a woman, so it fits the High Falls slogan "Celebrating Women in Film." However, it's not a feminist film--most of the women portrayed are stereotypes, and not one is a feminist role model.
