Cleopatra Entertainment will release DREAMING HOLLYWOOD, a dark action-drama from Writer-Director Frank Martinez, on March 22.
Described as “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” meets Tarantino, DREAMING HOLLYWOOD takes a deep dive into dive into Ray Balfi's bizarre world of drug dealers, prostitutes, dirty cops and social rejects as he tries to begin a new life-direction and shops his cartoon screenplay to 100 L.A. production companies. While facing rejection after rejection Ray learns that someone has stolen his script and made his movie, “The Dog's Meow” without his permission. Now, Ray's already messed-up life is thrown into catastrophic mayhem as he seeks revenge. Who stole his script? Everyone he meets is suspect as Ray is now motivated with a new lust for life…and for blood.
In addition to winning the Audience Award at the Erie International Film Festival and winning the Best Feature Film at the London International Monthly Film Festival, DREAMING HOLLYWOOD continues its journey thru the Festival circuit, being officially selected at the upcoming Baja California International Film Festival, the Los Angeles Lift Off Film Festival, the Studio City International Film & TV Festival, the Rome International Movie Festival and the 4TheaterMovies Film Festival in the Best Film and Best Screenplay Categories.
