A washed up Vegas lounge singer, Jack Satin, has no money, no job, and delusional aspirations of fame. When Jack is forced to leave Vegas, he packs up his old Cadillac and hits the road for Atlantic City, but his car dies in the desert and Jack is left stranded in the small town of Lost Springs. There, Jack meets a jazz legend turned mechanic, Doc Bishop, and a dreamy eyed bartender, Lauren Wells, who make Jack realize this town has more to offer him than the bright lights of the big city -- what unfolds is comedy at the crossroads of life.
Solid Indie Movie
First of all, I'm a fan of indie movies. This is definitely one of the better indie flicks I've seen in awhile. It's a nice blend of comedy and more emotional heart than you'd guess from the trailer. The plot synopsis above sums the story up well. Hamilton von Watts turns in a great performance as the title character. Definitely my favorite part. It would have been easy to just ham the role up and overplay the lounge singer bit, but von Watts really hooked me. I found him to be more tragic and emotionally grounded than I would have expected. Was pleasantly surprised. Supporting cast is also fantastic. I love seeing Melissa Joan Hart and Robert Guillaume (Sports Night 4 life) in some roles. Overall it's a great watch. Highly recommended if you like intimate, funny and surprisingly heartfelt indie films. Rent this one.
Entertaining Indie Film
Satin is a heartfelt indie movie. The lead character Jack Satin is very entertaining to watch as he bumbles through his life trying to figure things out. It was funny, but still told a great story and had an unexpected ending. Check it out
Satin = the lounge singer in all of us
Jack Satin is a metaphor for the misunderstood wanderer in all of us. Lounge on, Satin. Lounge on.
