Synopsis

This is a darkly comic portrait of the treacherous world of the L.A. music scene, where people on every rung of the ladder exploit each other in pursuit of fame and success. Gwen (Jade Gordon) is a ruthlessly ambitious young woman who will do anything to secure a position as the next rock goddess. Gwen takes a job “cleaning house” for Liz (Ally Sheedy), a production designer looking for a New Age love, possibly in the form of record producer Burt (Larry Klein). Liz is best friends with former screen ingénue Eva (Rosanna Arquette), the wife of famed Brit rocker Clive (John Taylor). Clive and his band mates are tying to get a new album off the ground, but find themselves a bit more dated than they thought they were. Their one hope at getting their album released is merry (and wealthy) widow Jane (Beverly D’Angelo), who will back the group if the lead singer sleeps with her.

Dove Review

Content Description

Profanity and obscenity throughout – one from a kid; drug use and conversations; smoking, drinking; sexual conversations and situations; several shots of a nude pregnant woman, both in the shower and having her baby; an overdose victim is left to die covered in his own vomit by an unfeeling woman; some characters better themselves by film’s end, but many do not.
