Storyline

Benjamin Nelson was a HUGE Star in the 90's, one of the top musicians in his prime. He got in a devastating car accident and the public was left to believe he died and he wanted it that way. Over 10 years later Ben is coming back to see his Sister in LA and also revisits his Sisters roommate- the Fiance he left behind. After all this time, the few that see him push him for a comeback not realizing the damage left by the accident and his real reason for coming back after all these years. Written by Anonymous

A unique film with some excellent performances
5 February 2018 | by justin-209-152796See all my reviews

Before the Lights Come Up is an indie film with a definite point of view. It was made by the team behind Parker's Anchor and several other movies that I have enjoyed. The look and feel of the film is something that comes across as original and has a definite sense of place and time. Jennica and Ryan Schwartzman give great performances as complicated ex-finaces and two people trapped in life confusion. I recommend the film for any person looking for a flick that transcends the confines of a typical Hollywood film.
