Storyline

The tale of a young girl fresh off the bus from Iowa, who falls in love with a sexy and promising young actor, though their relationship threatens to complicate her own obsessive goal of becoming a famous actress. The film perfectly captures the delightful and desperate lives of those chasing dreams in Hollywood: One day they are shuffling down a boardwalk with too many suitcases, and the next they are lounging in contemporary hillside homes with a view of the city. Though neither state is permanent the more desirable one fuels the dream. The story's extraordinary execution portrays Hollywood as the fantastic and insane place that it is. Written by Lane Kneedler, American Film Institute Magazine

Trainwreck actress
24 September 2008 | by dwats8See all my reviews

First off I love independent film and stories about struggling in Hollywood. So when I saw the DVD cover and read the back of it I thought "Great, this is right up my alley!" When it started off I took into consideration that it was not of the highest caliber, then as I got more into the film I realized that the lead actress wasn't that good and kept over acting. I know that she was playing a desperate actress trying to make it, but it just didn't translate for me. I really liked the other people in it so I continued to watch. By the end of the film I was exhausted! Tanna Frederick clearly was not made for this part! Too much emotion, too intense, too eager even for this character, it was painful. I could tell that she was acting! NOT A GOOD SIGN! Besides the delightful part of Karen Black and a job well done by the other cast members. I would never recommend this movie to anyone!
