Storyline

Audrey Brodsky quits her dreary desk job to follow her childhood dream of becoming an actress. When she meets an aspiring cameraman on the internet and moves in with a sexy new roommate, the adventure of her life finally begins. Insider jokes about living in Los Angeles bring forth social commentary about the importance we place on celebrity. But below the jokes lie a bittersweet story that is both inspiring and realistic. We are reminded that happiness has little to do with fame, and that we long to be connected; connected to ourselves, each other and the world. Winner of 20 festival awards, this quirky, Wes Anderson inspired large-scale, micro-budget comedy boasts over 30 locations, 80 music cues including a mandolin score, and a cast of more than 50 speaking roles, the majority of whom are women. The Hollywood Times declares "You will fall in love with the characters and laugh to the end. Written by Publicity Services

Engaging, Enchanting and Enjoyable, well worth seeing.
23 October 2015 | by sjcohen4See all my reviews

Odd Brodsky engages you from the first moment when the young Audrey Brodsky captures your heart with her dreams. The film is beautifully written and crafted and carries you along with the ups and downs of Audrey's life, so well portrayed by Tegan Ashton Cohan. The characters who surround her are equally well crafted and acted with just the right mix of humour and pathos. The film is funny, energetic and optimistic and leaves you feeling that following your dreams is the right thing to do. With some extraordinary touches such as an original musical number and a fabulous cameo appearance by Jim Hanks as God look forward to more films from accomplished writer, producer and actor Cindy Baer.
