Lady Magdalene's

Movie Summary

Director:
J. Neil Schulman
Released:
2011
Rating:
Not Available
Full info on the official movie website at http://www.ladymagdalenes.com Start with Star Trek's original "Uhura," Nichelle Nichols, in the title role as a New Orleans madam who after the hurricanes moves to Pahrump, Nevada -- where's brothels are legal -- and who -- behind the camera -- exec produced, wrote and performed original songs on the soundtrack, and did the film's choreography. Add in a plot-twisty screenplay by award-winning novelist, libertarian journalist, and Twilight Zone screenwriter, J. Neil Schulman, who not only directed the film and wrote original songs for the soundtrack but played the supporting role of an American al Qaeda terrorist. Mix well with a fresh cast of talented actors including alumni of the Groundlings and the London Drama Centre; a gorgeous Shakespearean actress whose hobbies include collecting swords; a stunning Persian pop superstar; a Calvin Klein male model who did all his own stunts; a Miss Teen All American (a title previously held by Halle Berry), and an actual Nevada "working girl" ... And you end up with a one-of-a-kind independent film, defying all genre classification, which the producers have referred to as "a Jerry Bruckheimer tentpole made on an Ed Wood budget." Following its February 2008 world premiere at the San Diego Black Film Festival Lady Magdalene's won the festival's award for "Best Cutting Edge Film." After its September 2008 screening at Universal City's Cinema City International Film Festival Lady Magdalene's producers walked away with the statuette for Audience Choice. If you're looking for obligatory nudity and sex scenes, explosions, F-bombs, and the usual low-budget exploitation, this just isn't the movie for you. But if you're looking for a movie with a topsy-turvy plot you haven't seen a million times before, heroes and villains that defy the usual clich?s, dialogue you might actually have to think about bmoreless
