micro indie with an interesting performance
5 October 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Jana (April Telek) is an aged B-movie actress. Her claim to fame is a series of Amazon movies when she was younger. She is now around 40 and struggling to get roles. Her boyfriend Aron is a club DJ who spends all their money on drugs. She is a mentor to amateur actress Li. They are both waitresses working for Tommy. A customer named Calvin is an old director with a creepy mercurial offer for Jana. Jana and Li go out for an audition. The director Derek wants a meeting with Jana and she's convinced that she's got the role. Her agent Margaret is quitting the business and gets her one last role. Jana dismisses the lesser offer and ridicules it. The meeting with Derek turns out to be him talking to her about Li's ability to handle the lead.

This is a micro indie hitting well above its weight. Telek is compelling as an over-the-hill bombshell unwilling to accept her fate. There are some familiar faces but the lesser names do hold the movie back. It would have been great to have Li played by a bigger actress. Tommy's club looks too cheap. It has less customers than waitresses. It was probably hampered by the lack of a budget. Overall, it's a great micro indie of a Hollywood trope.
