Directed by Kevin Kolsch, Dennis Widmyer
Determined to make it as an actress in Hollywood, Sarah Walker spends her days working a dead-end job, enduring petty friendships and going on countless casting calls in hopes of catching her big break. After a series of strange auditions, Sarah lands the leading role in a new film from a mysterious production company. But with this opportunity comes bizarre ramifications that will transform her both mentally and physically into something beautiful... and altogether terrifying. From the producer of CHEAP THRILLS and JODOROWSKY'S DUNE, Dennis Widmyer & Kevin Kolsch’s STARRY EYES is an occult tale of ambition, possession, and the true cost of fame.
In the city of dreams, a desperate actress will go to occult lengths for the role of a lifetime.
Cast: Alexandra Essoe, Amanda Fuller, Fabianne Therese, Pat Healy, Marc Senter
FOR A SHORT MVIE WAS STIL A TAD SLOW 4ME..THO GOT CRACKN INDA END👌🏼SO YEAH..NEAT WATCH AFTA ALL😎
Essoe is brilliant, capturing her character’s slow descent/ascent with sadness, tragedy, humour, and horror. A slow burn but worth your time. The ruthlessness of Hollywood perfectly encapsulated.
Love it! Great acting and awesome story!!
I had seen this pop up on a few lists and figured I would give it a shot. Glad I did. I can see how some people might not like it since it does leave much open to interpretation, however, for myself, I enjoy a little metaphor here and there. The lead actress (Alexandra Essoe) was fantastic! Some of the dialogue and supporting performances (notably the Producer) were a little stilted. Overall, as long as you are up for something a little different, I think it is well worth the time.
