Set during one long night in the LGBT sub-culture of Los Angeles, Daisy and Tyler are two rock and roll musicians who are selected to partake in a battle of the bands contest to claim a prize. But while on their way to the concert, their van breaks down and they are sidetracked by Daisy's younger sister, Colby, a recent college graduate who agrees to drive them to the concert if they help her hook up with her girl-crush; a struggling actress named Misty. Also tagging along is Misty's bisexual best friend Sid, who longs to hook up with a famous celebrity. However, Misty is not interested in hooking up with Colby because she has her sights on Tyler. Meanwhile, Daisy tries to win back her ex-girlfriend, Xan, who is on a date with her latest girlfriend who is competing against Daisy and Tyler's band that very night. Elsewhere, Monique Jones is a violent ex-con recently paroled from prison who comes looking for Daisy and Tyler with a score to settle. Written by
A really fun movie that unfortunately not going to find the audience it deserves.
It's called "Girltrash" and if that's not something you find interesting then you're probably not going to enjoy it. This movie is fairly low budget but it doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is. I found it entertaining, heart felt and just plain fun.
The songs are pretty good, the acting is perfect in tone. The characters are all interesting and pacing is excellent. It's low budget, it's not 'slick', but it's damned likable.
I have to agree with another reviewer that whoever recorded the sound or did the sound editing really let the side down. It doesn't ruin the film but the sound mixing is pretty amateur in comparison to the rest of the production. And whoever held the boom needs to learn to point it away from the road.
My only problem now is finding other movies like this - perfect late night movies. Movies that aren't afraid to just be entertaining. I have no idea who the intended audience of this movie is but I loved it. I guess you'd label it as 'guilty pleasure' but it's better than that. It's a movie I'd be proud to support yet I wouldn't expect anyone to understand my love of it. I just hope more people find this movie. It deserves to be a cult hit.
