SYNOPSIS

An all-star ensemble cast leads this irreverent and heartwarming comedy about what turning twenty-five means to a struggling actress in Los Angeles. With a disconnected father, a live-in boyfriend who s struggling financially, and a complex of noisy neighbors who call themselves artists, her life could not seem bleaker. Spanning the course of one day, Amelia gets guidance and wisdom from the most curious characters: a movie star, a photographer, casting directors, unemployed actors, plus-size sex shop owners, a psychic, and a cross-dressing neighbor, all who lead her down the winding road of acceptance.

I was cruising On Demand one day, when I saw this great title- "Amelia's 25th". I am glad it started with an A, or else I might not have clicked on it. I thought it might be a bit high-brow from the title, perhaps it was about a symphony, or else Amelia Earhart? After looking up the description online, I immediately ordered it. The film is chalked full of amazing Independent film stars, laughter and witty language. It is peppered somewhat with un-even performances, especially by the 2 leads, but this is definitely made up for within moments of the film's opening sequence.

Amelia (Electra Avellan- "Machete" & "Grindhouse")is a struggling bi-lingual actress who is a bit down on her luck, but still has a lot going for her. She is late on the rent, late on her auditions, and late on her monthly visit from "Aunt Flo". Her agent asks her to lose the accent, and informs her she is over the hill in Hollywood. This is difficult for Amelia, as her father is a famous film director (Robert Rodriguez "Sin City", "Machete") Mostly, this day is more than usually depressing to her, because it is her 25th birthday, which to most people wouldn't be that much of a milestone, except that own mother passed away at 24, which now makes Amelia brood on her mortal existence, probably much more than she would on any other birthday. The day you become older than your parent is always a sobering experience. A cross dressing neighbor (played divinely by David Lewis) gives her the number of the psychic who lives in the building (the ever glamorous ball of fire Jennifer Tilly) to perhaps help her sort things out in life and deal with her non relenting day.

One of the problems that can plague a solid independent feature is that its ideas may be good enough to stand on their own; however, considering the low-budget no-budget nature of indy filming, the vehicle ends up getting hamstrung with a cast of players who don't have the acting chops to make it all come alive the way it needed. Such is the case with AMELIA'S 25th, where every one out of three cast members probably was the best producers could get ... or else they didn't do enough takes to give the director and/or editor enough to work with. There's a nice spark to their interplay at times, but it isn't consistent enough to keep the engine running. What saves the picture are the handful of veterans who have a few tricks up their sleeve when it comes to providing some nuance.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

Finally reaching her 25th birthday, Amelia (played with suitable but not respectable aplomb by Electra Avellan) thinks she's come face-to-face with death. She lives in Hollywood, and she's been warned by her agent that "25 is the new dead." Indeed, her career seems dead, as she bebops from one dreary audition to the next. Her love life seems dead, as her boyfriend can't quite seem to stick his landing in the industry. And her prospects seem dead, as she can't help but looking for what's coming next in life instead of celebrating what she has. What's a girl to do?

I recently rented Amelia's 25h On Demand, because I saw Jennifer Tilly was in it. I am a HUGE Jenn Tilly fan. I would watch her read the phone book, but haven't seen her in a big film for a while. Proud to announce MISS TILLY IS BACK!!! She was hilarious, sexy, bouncing off the walls, and back to her Bullets Over Broadway/Liar Liar/Bound days. And that voice! In addition, Dany Trejo was HILARIOUS, especially in a scene with Margaret Cho, and a buxom African American woman. Wait for THAT scene! I laughed out loud, and then brought friends over to watch it a second time. I pre ordered it, and Cannot wait to get my own copy!! The writing is hilarious, the supporting cast is really really incredible, and you recognize a lot of them from different films.

If you are an indie movie freak, this is one of the best indie comedies I have ever seen. In the spirit of Garden State, Juno, 200 Cigarettes, and Harold & Kumar. Quirky & irreverent, you will laugh from beginning to end. There is some strong language, so if you have kids, it may not be the best to have them in the room. But send them to Grandma's!! Stand out performances by Jennifer Tilly (Of course), Danny Trejo (in a comedy- you don't usually see him NOT killing someone, but he's really funny!), Margaret Cho, Ashley Parker Angel, a big buxom actress (Shana Gregory), and a cross dressing neighbor, who it took me a second to realize was a guy (David Lewis). Oh- and the legendary director Robert Rodriguez plays a small role also. As far as I can tell, that is his FIRST on screen role where he is not the director. A true ensemble piece. It moves fast, light, and a surprise ending that kind of brings it all together. Rent it, buy it, make it yours, but not before I get my copy!!
