The Champagne Club is a 2005 movie about art, commerce and insanity. The movie, written and directed by Joao Machado, was inspired by the writings of artist and mental patient Jonathan Hack, and won "Best Feature Film" at the 2002 Seattle Underground Film Festival in Washington. The film is about four intellectual, young, rich, Californian aristocrats, Tim Miles (Brian Donovan) and his fiance May Donahue (Sara Rinde) and Bruce Wallace (Robert Ripley) and his wife Connie Vandercliff (Jacqueline Meyer). Both couples are having problems so the four decide to take a vacation at a remote, exotic villa. When they arrive, they find that the retreat is stocked with the finest champagne, works of art, drugs and exquisite food. Isolated from society with plenty of time of their hands, the two thrill-seeking couples are free to explore their most depraved desires, however, this quickly transcends into cocaine snorting, murder, double-crossings, cannibalism and madness.
