Meet Monica Velour
Meeting Monica Velour is an American comedy about a geeky teenage super fan of an 80's adult film star. To me it felt like Napoleon Dynamite meets Sex Drive, or The Girl Next Door, and was a nice light-hearted change at the festival! The film see's seventeen year old Tobe travel across America in order to see his heart throb perform. Here, he meets her and becomes involved in her complicated reality. The film, although a comedy, tackles gritty issues such as divorce, sex, and prostitution. As well as heart warming, it is heart breaking. Lovely film and ill definately be seeing it again :) FOUR STARS.
