This first feature by Vancouver, Canada director Katrin Bowen, follows April Telek as Jana, a struggling B-movie actress in Los Angelese. Jana is still waiting for that big break, and yet optimistic, cheerful and likeable as she deals with rejection, her ‘day’ job in a seedy cocktail lounge, and a gorgeous but unreliable boyfriend. At a Q&A after the Vancouver premiere, Telek told the audience that her agent described this as a make or break role and she delivers a note perfect performance as the former beauty queen and “Amazon” star on the days approaching her 40th birthday. However, like a Russian short story, this film does not arc, and continues its way to a depressing end. [canada, 2010]
