iFilm April 11 - My Art
DIRECTED BY LAURIE SIMMONS
UNITED STATES / 2017 / ENGLISH / 86 MIN
Single, New York City artist Ellie Shine is looking to gain inspiration and tranquility as she housesits for a friend in upstate New York. Accompanied by her lovable handicapped dog, Bing, Ellie comes of age — middle age — in her new surroundings. She turns the adjoining barn into her new workplace, staging elaborate recreations of classic movie scenes, ranging from SOME LIKE IT HOT to A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. Business unexpectedly evolves into possible pleasure when Ellie invites three local men — two gardeners and a lawyer — to participate in her art. Soon all three men are becoming romantically interested in Ellie, but she remains determined to resist anything that could interrupt her work.
