Billie Golden is a beautiful aspiring Cabaret singer who works as singer in a small club in Queens who lives her life as she was in an old fashioned technicolor movie and dressing up like Audrey Hepburn while her mother is a bitter alcoholic who rejects Billie's way of living and rejecting the advances of Billie's boss and owner, Sal of the club she works in. Billie meets two men in her life that either see her ambitions fulfilled or break her heart. Greg, is a rich stockbroker type who Billie went to school with and makes a strong reconnection with showing her the world of the upper class which include his stuck up friends who don't seem too thrilled that he's in a relationship with Billie. Then there's Elliot, a professional piano player and her teacher who she's at odds with at first as they bicker about a blown job she blames him for. As their relationship from student to love grows, she sees alot more in him as much as he does in her. He sees her talent and passion more than Greg... Written by Danny Daniel

Romantic Indie Deserves Wider Appreciation
9 February 2003 | by cottrellpjSee all my reviews

I just saw Standard Time at the Victoria Film Festival. Not just for incurable romantics like me, it should also appeal to fans of nostalgic flicks like "Purple Rose of Cairo". Deserves a full release.
