Luna wants to be a star, but the world of movies can be harsh. This film is all about journeys, how do you get on, when do you stop, change direction.

Low Budget High Return
2 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My Life As A Bus Stop is a fabulous film with some fantastic performances. In correction of the other review the man with "learning difficulties" is inaccurate. He's just gullible, as are most people who are desperate to get into the film industry. We all like to think we won't fall for it, but more often than not we do. This is a recurring theme within the film - with everyone working for free, with the dangled carrot of that big pay day and stardom keeping them going. I laughed whole heartedly at the film, but came away quite depressed too. This is a very funny, but also a very true representation of the film industry in Scotland. Maybe it hits too close to the mark for the industry to laugh at, but people outside the "industry" will find this a funny and bizarre look into the world of low-budget film making.
