Storyline

It is the typical working day for Marcy at Runway Divas, the most elite modeling agency in Chicago, where everyone can be a model. A furious stage mom is raising Hell about the high costs of her daughter's modeling career while Cupcake, Marcy's glamorous co-worker, is dressing an overweight construction worker in a glittery thong for his first photo shoot. Vince, the president, is struggling to explain the "one time" modeling fee of $549 to a non-English speaking middle-aged plumber, while Victoria, his emotionally unstable girlfriend, is registering a seventy year old woman for the agency's next lingerie show. It is the typical day until, Miriam, an overly ambitious, mentally challenged woman with a profound talent for playing the accordion, walks through the door. When Vince assigns Marcy the job of turning Miriam into a star, taking the $549 modeling fee becomes more difficult than usual. As he organizes a fashion show designed to drive away the models that paid their fees, ... Written by Monika Szewerniak

Sad but true
13 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

As it's said at the beginning of the movie... this is based on a true story. And if you know anyone who's tried to become a model, actor, writer or anything else in the entertainment field, you probably heard a story rather similar to the one in the movie. There has popped up a sea of vultures who have made way too much money feeding off the dreams of others and this movie has finally shown a spotlight on these crooks.

I wish that Runway Divas was far-fetched fiction, but no matter how outlandish the story seemed to get, I had no doubt that somewhere... sometime just this exact situation has probably taken place. Even though the filmmakers tried to show it's humorous side, the drama always slipped through and you really began to feel for all the poor shmucks that got suckered into making idiots of themselves.

Most of my experience with independent films have usually left me bored from a slow story about somebody trying to find themselves, but this film told us a story that has not yet been covered by traditional Hollywood. And that's what independent films are suppose to do.
