'Live Fast Die Young' looks at Hollywood from the eyes of a former 'insider'. Even though I'm not a part of 'Hollywood', I found it totally gripping. It's very much a character driven piece and while many argue that the all of them are self-absorbed, who isn't at least a little self-absorbed in this industry? All ten characters are of distinct personalities and even though they are a little clichéd (Hollywood starlet, agent), they remain real and are well played. The friends include:

-Valerie - who is so desperately trying to win a part in some movie. The actress who plays her is really talented.

-David (who is marvelously played by Gary Poux) is the unforgettable writer who is turning his back on the industry and gave his life to Jesus Christ.

-Alex Embry who is the self-destructive agent trying to get this writer back into Hollywood.

-The Movie producer who is climbing the ladders of success and finding only emptiness

-The Movie mogul who reveals his agenda in controlling the media

-The Marketing VP - who is fired and then forced to confront her future

-The A-list star - who reveals his own emptiness in a profound way

-Big Man - the struggling screenwriter who discovers in the end the true meaning of life.

The actors are brilliantly cast as they fit the parts physically (the right age and looks) and deliver sincere performances. I won't single anyone out as I thought they all did excellent.

These Hollywood parties are known to be a wild and reckless and the film's jazz music wonderfully adds to the feel that this is a major party.

Everyone will recognize at least a couple of the conflicts the characters face. I loved the way it ended. Instead, what is shown is that the characters are aware that Jesus Christ can change people's live and now it is time to grow up and to build our own lives while an uncertain future awaits. It's a great movie.
