It is hard to stray far from one's true love, mine always being fascination with special FX gore makeup and, two... Los Angeles...EAT provides both in my retrospective for the "LA LA Land Program".  I first met director Jimmy Weber when I wrote for the STARZ Denver Film Festival back in 2014.  EAT is a smart satire on a city that literally and figuratively can eat you up alive.  The City of Angels is a Mecca for struggling artists that migrate here to pursue their version of the "American Dream." Having lived there extensively finding my own path in the film industry, I witnessed first hand the sweet smell of desperation as people swapped their dignity for remedial roles, jobs in the restaurant industry and could not pay rent or buy food to maintain the appearances of a cast-able "prospect"....pay for noodles or keep my hair fabulous? It may seem like a superficial decision, however, the rules for this city are only understood by those who sacrifice everything for that call of potential fame.  Some come with the desire to produce true art...some want the attention and to beloved by millions, regardless, it is more about resilience, adaptation and perseverance more than talent in most cases.  From the outside looking in, Los Angeles comprises of superficial people waiting in perpetual traffic for superficial motivations, yet to those who have lived in this beautiful city, it is a bittersweet amalgamation of daily creation, desperation, illusions and reality all cohabitating in a symbiotic life form of its own morphing. The entire world looks to LA for entertainment and those that participate in this unrelenting game of chance, it is worth it to connect to people globally in these philosophically transcendent ways through their performances.  I miss LA for this reason....

Synopsis:
Novella McClure is like most struggling actresses in Los Angeles: she's in her early 30s, her fake name sounded cooler ten years ago, and she hasn't landed a role in three years. To top it all off, she's developed a disturbing habit of eating her own flesh. Novella desperately tries to hide her strange condition from her motherly landlord, Eesha, and somewhat psychopathic best friend, Candice, but her body and mind continue to deteriorate in the depressing world of failed auditions and sketchy nightclubs. Can a romantic relationship with her psychiatrist prevent her from self -destruction? Or will her fatal habit continue to eat away at her?
