About this project
This is NOT a trailer but rather a sample sequence, a preview of what the film will be like. It's meant to show investors the feel of the film but it is NOT the final product.
MIDLIFE - A feature film set in modern day, a comedy/drama that takes place in Los Angeles and New York City. It's about a middle aged man who is not sure what he wants to do with his life. It's inspired by the films of John Cassavettes & Robert Altman.
THE THEME - In everyone's life there comes a time when you question yourself and your entire life. The decisions you made in the past, the work you have done and the relationships you have had, your successes and failures. The past catches up to you and demands that you evaluate it before you can move on with the rest of your life.
THE STORY takes place in Los Angeles and New York City and explores the life of David, who is having a midlife crisis. David works as a business consultant but has lost his enthusiasm for the job. On a business trip to New York City he runs into his ex-wife, Vicki, in a bar and rekindles his attraction to her. But things become complicated when they go to her place and he discovers that her recent ex-husband still lives with her. After a long night of drama and drunkenness, David and Victoria end up in a hotel room sharing their current problems. David returns to Los Angeles and becomes involved with a young woman named Mae Ling. He also is under a massive amount of pressure from his boss, Diane. When David takes his daughter who lives with his sister, to visit his other ex-wife Melody who lives in a rehab house, things go out of control. David is doing a high wire balancing act, trying to please all the women in his life. When Vicki moves to Los Angeles and shows up at his condo and wants to reunite with him, he must make a final decision as to whom he wants to be with and what he wants to do with the rest of his life.
THE FILM will be shot and directed in a naturalistic style. The film will be fast paced and should run about 90 min. We will be using very talented actors to create a powerful experience. We want to bring honesty to the screen and connect with our viewer in a sincere way.
