A touching story that reveals the soul of Echo Park in Los Angeles.
16 June 2014 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A brilliant first film by director Amanda Marsalis, 'Echo Park' succeeds in bringing interesting and unique characters to life. Actors Tony Okungbowa and Mamie Gummer deliver the performances of their careers in an intimate portrayal of characters from different worlds brought together in Echo Park. By making the distinctive area of Los Angeles, Echo Park, into a character of its own, it joins the ranks of other great films like Chinatown, Midnight in Paris, and LA Story.

This is an independent film that dares to tell a story about Los Angeles that does not rely on Hollywood stereotypes and plot devices and story clichés that permeate most movies produced in Hollywood. (Most of those films are not even shot in Los Angeles, but move their productions overseas, or up north to Canada to save money). The look of the film is not just emulating Echo Park, it IS Echo Park. For this reason I recommend this film to everyone. It is superb.
