IMDB – Plot Summary for Amelia´s 25th:
“Birthdays hold a magical milestone in everyone’s lives. Each one represents a different exciting adventure in life: Ten years old- Double digits; Thirteen- Bar-mitzvahs; Fifteen- Quinceanera; Sixteen- Sweet Sixteen & a driver’s license; Eighteen- a legal adult, Twenty-one- Legal drinking age… except for twenty five. Nothing special happens after you turn twenty-five. Especially in Hollywood… twenty five is the new forty!
That is what Amelia discovers when she turns a quarter of a century old. In the city of Lost Angels, twenty-five is the equivalent of “old” and “done” to a struggling actress like Amelia. With a disconnected father, her live-in boyfriend struggling financially, and surviving in a complex of noisy neighbors who call themselves artists, her life could not seem bleaker. This notion not being what her dreams imagined at this age, sets her out on her quest for discovering her true purpose in life in this hilarious and heart warming dark comedy.
Aaron, her boyfriend, a struggling film producer, feels alienated by the crush of providing a future for himself and the girl he loves, and is sent out on his own path of success. In both their journeys, they find each other. Spanning over the course of one day, Amelia finds guidance and wisdom in the most curious places: A movie star, a photographer, Casting directors, unemployed actors, plus size sex shop owners, playboys, psychics, and a cross dressing neighbor- all leading her to the Angel she has always longed to meet. Alice may have lived in Wonderland, but Amelia lives in L.A. In Hollywood, it’s not “Coming of Age”, it’s “Coming to Grips”.”
