Illeana Douglas, Jeff Goldblum, and Daryl Hannah. What More Could You Ask For?
I went to see this short film at a special screening at the Savannah Film Festival (the same night I attended the premiere of "Stage Beauty," but that will be another review) and had the pleasure of meeting Illeana Douglas after the screening, where she talked about collaborating with the directors of the documentary "Jon E. Edwards is in Love" (who were also in attendance) on a documentary about Jeff Goldblum (that should be interesting to see).
To put it simply:
Illeana Douglas (of "Action" and "Stir of Echoes" fame) now works in a supermarket as a way to take a break from Hollywood.
Crazy fans who can't remember the title of "Stir of Echoes" or say that they saved the ticket stubs for "Grace of My Heart" continually harangue her.
Daryl Hannah is continually chewed out by the boss.
Jeff Goldblum shops at the store to buy the ingredients for a cake (What kind? No one, not even Illeana Douglas, will ever know.)
Ms. Douglas, who also wrote and directed the short, knows comedy because I was laughing all fourteen minutes, whether it's her being stalked or Daryl Hannah being a lazy oaf (although I was secretly hoping she would put "the eye-patch" on and go all California Mountain Snake on the boss' ass. Sarah Silverman has a brief cameo as herself doing the opening act for the comedy show Illeana's put on inside the supermarket. And while he only appears in the last five minutes, Jeff Goldblum is funny (but then again, he's always looked or acted funny, so it was a combination of both).
If you can find it, see "Supermarket." It's one of the best celebrity-made shorts you'll probably see.
