Echo Park

Movie Summary

Director:
Robert Dornhelm
Released:
1986
Rating:
R
Echo Park is a bittersweet comedy which looks at the denizens of Echo Park, a decaying section of Los Angeles popular with struggling actors and musicians, largely because of its cheap housing. May Greer is a single mother and aspiring actress who makes ends meet by tending bar (the most lucrative job she's been offered in show biz is as a combination stripper and singing telegram girl). Her neighbor August is a body-builder from Austria who dreams of becoming a movie star like Arnold Schwarzenegger, though these days he's supporting himself by doing low-budget TV commercials for deodorant. May and August have an on-again, off-again relationship, which has more to do with sex and loneliness than love. Hoping to stretch her budget a bit, May rents out a room to Jonathan, a wannabe singer/songwriter who makes his money delivering pizzas. May takes a liking to Jonathan, and her son Henry Jonathan as the benevolent father figure that's been missing from his life.moreless
