Storyline

FIX takes you from Beverly Hills to Watts, and places in between, in one day, as documentary filmmakers Bella and Milo race to get Milo's brother Leo from jail to rehab before 8pm, or Leo goes to prison for three years. Inspired by true events, we follow the trio as they document their trip from a suburban police station in Calabasas through mansions in Beverly Hills, East LA chop-shops, rural wastelands, and housing projects in Watts as they attempt to raise the $5,000 required to get Leo into the rehab clinic. Along the way the audience meets dozens of colorful characters, each with their own anomalous perspective on Leo's larger than life personality and style, and each with their own excuse for why they cannot help out. In the end, it may take a drug deal to get the necessary funds for rehab. Written by Anonymous

Sometimes interesting but couple keeps making the same mistake
19 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Filmmakers Bella (Olivia Wilde) and Milo (Tao Ruspoli) are pushed into driving Milo's brother Leo (Shawn Andrews) from prison across town to rehab or else Leo will be spending time in jail. Bella is not too happy as Milo is obligated despite their previous appointments. As they film their trip, Leo goes from one location to another in search for money to pay the $5k for the rehab. They meet sketchy characters doing questionable things as it seems like there is always another stop.

This looks like an indie a bunch of friends did on their day off. Shawn Andrews gives a very kinetic performance, but it wears thin quickly. The problem with the story is that Bella and Milo keep repeating the same mistake over and over again. Leo is obviously lying to them as he spends the money on drugs. At some point, a clear thinking person would just stuff Leo into the back of the car while they drive him to the rehab instead of letting him go to every drug spot he knows. Somehow the movie needs to set up why the couple would go along with any of this.
