Hollywood Dreams (2007)



Critic Consensus: Yet another film about a small town girl trying to make it in the City of Angels, Hollywood Dreams' improvisation and absurdity tests viewers' patience.

Movie Info

When an aspiring young starlet from Iowa falls in love with a handsome and promising young actor, she finds her dreams of fame slowly fading in a poignant tale of show-business aspirations from director Henry Jaglom. Upon arriving in Los Angeles to seek her fortune on film and stage, an innocent girl from Iowa (Tanna Frederick) falls for a talented rising star (Justin Kirk). As the pair tenuously attempts to balance their burgeoning romance with the vivid dreams of stardom, the demands of their careers soon begin to take precedence over the simple pleasures in life.

This is one of Jaglom's most curious and oddly moving films.

September 7, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

I've been among the unbelievers, but Hollywood Dreams turned me around -- to a point. Perhaps it's because the film is among Jaglom's best, love him or leave him.

July 6, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It's the Hollywood dream factory as seen through [director] Jaglom's lens, and it's often out of focus.

June 8, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The balance of this indie production (Jaglom's 14th) consists of his usual weakly improvised relationship comedy.

June 7, 2007 | Full Review…

Jaglom's Hollywood Dreams are far closer to reality than they might seem. Unfortunately.

June 7, 2007 | Rating: 3/4

[Director] Jaglom's scruffy style doesn't carry it through. He puts enough toxic insincerity on screen to singe, though.
