Plot Summary

Hollywood Dreams' extraordinary execution portrays Hollywood as the fantastic and insane place that it is. Only director Henry Jaglom could capture this classic story with such a deliberate and intense style that it feels entirely new. Set in the city of angels, Hollywood Dreams spins the tale of a young girl fresh off the bus from Iowa (the astonishing Tanna Frederick), who falls in love with a sexy and promising young actor (Justin Kirk). Their relationship threatens to complicate her own obsessive goal of becoming a famous actress. Featuring wonderful performances by David Proval, Karen Black, Zack Norman, Melissa Leo, Keaton Simons and Sabrina Jaglom, the film perfectly captures the delightful and desperate lives of those chasing dreams in Hollywood: one day they are shuffling down a boardwalk with too many suitcases, and the next they are lounging in contemporary hillside homes with a view of the city. Though neither state is permanent, the more desirable one fuels the dream.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Knowing but never jaded, Hollywood Dreams is driven by Ms. Frederick's no-boundaries commitment to her broken character, a performance that's as startling as it is touching. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Better pruning and different choices might have helped to shape the film into a more cohesive piece, instead of one so desperate to be funny that it sacrifices its honesty. – Lael Loewenstein, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The movie caves in on the issue of charm. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Hollywood Dreams is meant to be an insider's tale, but it feels like it comes from the cinema of hangers-on. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011
