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

Pleasantly surprised
10 February 2010 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure I was going to like this film, but it turned out to be very engaging. Kudos to Olivia Wilde. I really enjoyed the ride. Looking forward to this one on DVD. THe cinematography was especially wonderful. I went back and forth with believing this was a real documentary and a narrative film. It had a lot of wonderful elements. It was creepy, quirky, realistic, suspenseful, and in some ways it felt like those old Hope and Crosby road pictures. I didn't love the ending. Some of the supporting players were very good and believable. It was a fun ride through the many sites and sounds of LA. The music was very eclectic and it seemed that the script was written around the music. The scene in Watts was particularly realistic.
