    • Synopsis
    • In a place where power, success and fame are omnipotent and love, nature and sincerity are not just casualties but often inconvenient, Lost Angels explores the journey of Charlie and Joshua through the maze of living in Hollywood. Sweethearts since high school, the two are now separated and living at extremes…Joshua, playing his music at a local dive bar, while Charlie explores life as an actress and in the fast lane with renown film director, Richard Steinberg. Despite her admission that she still loves Joshua, she will not return, determined to give her dream a real chance.

      One revelatory night when, almost accosted by producer Samuel Rosen, tinsletown’s unique and disturbing conventions and traditions become painfully clear. Charlie runs back to Joshua feeling broken and seemingly unable to accept the unsettling nature of her chosen lifestyle. Chick, an eccentric former music guru, desperate to re-capture his place in the upper hierarchy of the music industry, pursues Joshua, desperate to sign the talented singer/songwriter. Upon Charlie’s unexpected late night escape back into Richard’s arms Chick explains to Joshua that Charlie was seduced by the drug we refer to as "Hollywood"…the fame, the spotlight, the power. “They never come back”, he states. “You have to let it go.” To which Joshua replies after some thought, “…or be famous”

      Lost Angels is a heart-breaking love-story expressed through the soulful sounds of Oliver Pigott’s amazing soundtrack and questions the wisdom of sacrificing real values for artificial ones.
