Carl Mazzocone Sr.,
Based on a true story, ONE HOUR FANTASY GIRL is a compelling coming-of-age drama that is like no other film of its kind. Boldly honest and thought provoking, the film introduces audiences to the world of a 20-yr-old fantasy girl: Becky Lewis, who escaped an abusive mother at the age of 15, surviving on her own in LA ever since. Having always struggled for money, Becky becomes business partners with Chi, an aspiring musician, who convinces her to work as a fantasy girl, acting out any fantasy a guy wants but no sex, no nudity and 100% legal. She immediately gains two frequent customers, Roger and Bobby, who change her life forever. Becky finds herself in a web of deceit, betrayal and murder that forces her to give up her own happiness. Shaken and bruised, yet determined to make it, Becky pushes forward hoping to earn enough money to invest in real estate and make the "big bucks." Her journey leads her to find an unlikely ally who, for a moment, gives her the break she's never had. Written by
This film will be on the short list of all time lifelong favorites
I loved this film. It is real, and sometimes its ugly, but it rings true almost every step of the way. The cast does some of the best work I've seen in a long while, and the story is hauntingly sad. It doesn't get tied up in a pretty pink bow when its over, its like life really is more often than not....hard, ugly, messy, and without a sweet resolution. that being said, just like in life the people in the story have true beauty the kind that shows from within as each attempt to make their own way...in a world that doesn't care. If you want to see how the real world is and can be...please watch this film. You will be so glad you did...
