What brings the hopeful to Hollywood? For a young rapper, it’s the chance to be a star. And for the apartment manager that he becomes friends with, those dreams are twenty years in the past.
Reggie (Ryan Silva, who also wrote and directed this) and his girlfriend Maya (Lora Lee) have lucked out and got a place from Frank (Freddy Andreiuci), who seems like a nice enough guy other than, you know, saying the worst word you can to a young black couple.
But when the young couple gets in a fight, Reggie has no one in Los Angeles to spend time with other than the old man that runs the place. Of course, they end up bonding — you can see that coming from the first scene. But this film is so natural and their conversations so intriguing that watching this film becomes a pleasure.
Unless I was sent this film, I probably wouldn’t have watched it. I’m glad that I did, because it was well-made and was the perfect movie for the mood I was in.
You can watch this on Amazon Prime.
