Five Minute Call
Theatrical caper movie. Three showbiz scoundrels overcome all odds to revive their careers by putting on a play. In doing so they achieve personal insight and a hit play by accident. FIVE MINUTE CALL is a high energy, character-based comedy in the same genre as THE FULL MONTY. Its appeal lies in the strength of the story and unforgettable characters. Tom’s an ex film star who’s got Parkinson’s disease and medication that addicts him to sex, gambling and shopping. David is a retired comic genius, battling booze and stage fright and George is a noted cult film director with anger management issues. They’ve got a downloaded copy of the script and a motive. All they have to do now is overcome insurmountable odds, thugs, arts bureaucrats, cops, the dead playwright’s necrophiliac executor, mad neurologists and Judy Davis.
This is a hymn to strange and wonderful humanity and the love of putting on a show.
