Storyline

Jody has arrived in Hollywood, fresh out of a New York film school with student awards in hand, and ready to get her film made. Problem is Jody can't get a job and can't get anybody to read her script. The only job Jody can get is as an editor at a porn production company. Still determined to get her film made, Jody attempts to use the studio's facilities, but the repercussions if she gets caught, might be more than she can handle. Written by napierslogs

Intelligently funny with depth and surprises
3 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After seeing "Amy's O," I vowed to watch everything by this filmmaker I could get my hands on. I was not disappointed by "Finding Bliss" except that Julie Davis, herself was not in it. The cast was very strong anyway, and things that usually disappoint me in comedies never did in this one. It's smart without being self-conscious; it's sexy without losing subtlety and it's romantic but never sappy. It doesn't hit you on the head with a message but it has one, which deepens it beyond many romantic comedies. Just when I thought I was sure I knew what would happen next, I was surprised and delighted to be wrong. I will watch it again because I was laughing too hard to get all the gems. One of the most tasteful films I've seen in a long time.
