Katie is a serious documentary filmmaker. She's frustrated because she's about to hit 32, yet still can't find any highbrow work that would get her career going. For instance, her dream project is to make a documentary about the famous 20th century Russian writer and dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Since no one wants to finance such project, she agrees to be a director for hire for TV producer Arlene, who gives her an assignment she couldn't hate more. She is to shoot a documentary series about the life of singles dating in a big city. Her friend and cameraman Spider, who has a crush on her, joins her. Their subject turns out to be Jed, a handsome self-centered guy completely oblivious to the proper dating etiquette. Every date he goes to, he inadvertently turns into a disaster, which makes for great television. Katie grows to like Jed and decides to try to help him become a better dater.
Inspired story of the trials and tribulations of film making vs. a personal LIFE and missed interactions (i.e. Love life, et al )
A wonderfully produced and directed film about inspired film making. In order to present your vision on the silver screen, are you willing to sacrifice MORE of your vision and values (to complete a commercial venture) in order to gain the next step in completing ur "pinnacle" film ? Do personal sacrifices really weigh in against reaching that vision "film" ?? These are just some of the conflicts and dichotomies wonderfully explored, and presented to the movie viewer as it enticingly unfolds before you. Truly an enchanting film that appeals both to the regular movie-goer and hits chords of those within the industry. A "fresh" and must-see film for our age. Well acted ... well plotted .... and attention holding. Kudos -----> Lisa Kors and crew !!!
