A Film You Should See, But Never Will
27 October 2019 | by ososoftmineralsSee all my reviews

This is one of those small films that few people ever saw. Unless you had a quirky theater in your community, like the Palm Theater in San Luis Obispo, CA, it never played where you were.

That's a pity, because this was a tight little movie about making it in Los Angeles. Good dialog, good story, good acting. Good directing, too. But, you didn't see it, and you missed something.

One of the things you missed was a breakout performance by Joey Lauren Adams, who stole the stage every time she smiled. I said to my partner after the movie, "I don't know who she is, but, we're going to see her again before long.

The next time was in Kevin Smith's "Chasing Amy."

I'm reviewing this because she made a cameo appearance in "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot," which I just saw yesterday.

Sadly, you won't get to see it, most likely. Nobody has put it on a DVD. Too bad. You'd enjoy it.
