Two brothers share a house in the Fairfax district of LA: Tony a feckless actor, Chris an accountant. Both have relationships on rocky ground. As these emotions swirl, Tony meets his letter carrier, a single-mom named Kathy who's come to LA from Wyoming with her daughter, a budding actress. Chris meets Anna, an Italian beauty working in the States, for a few months, wrangling animals on movie sets. Chris also befriends Clive, an aging, crusty man whose longing for his recently-deceased wife is a portrait of true love. Can Clive's example help Chris sort out his love life, and can Tony grow up enough to see the possibilities with Kathy and her daughter?Written by
It's good sometimes to be reminded we need low budget indie films to tell us warm, genuinely human stories. Despite poor production values wonderful performances shine through here. Most notable is Bill Henderson giving the performance of his life. Mainstream films offer so few strong emotional roles to the elderly (as opposed to pap like The Crew or Space Cowboys) that it's nice to see Bill shine. When I saw the premier screening at Toronto International Film Festival it received 3 standing ovations, one especially for Henderson, who was overwhelmed with joy to receive it.
I look forward to this film coming to town again so I can see it a second time after post-production.
