THIS LAST LONELY PLACE
This Last Lonely Place is a twisted, noir-drenched drive through the dark streets and back alleys of Los Angeles. Sam Taylor is a cab driver. On his last night on the job he picks up Frank Devore, an investment banker on the run. A horrible crime has been committed, and when they pick up Frank’s mistress Faye Gardner, things go from bad to worse, and quickly. Lust, greed, murder: some things never change.
Starring Rhys Coiro, Xander Berkeley and Carly Pope. Written and Directed by Steve Anderson.
THE WHITE ORCHID
Starring Olivia Thirlby, John Carroll Lynch, Janina Gavankar, Brendan Sexton, Nichelle Nichols and Jennifer Beals.
Shy and reserved, Claire Decker (Olivia Thirlby) is a part-time investigator for Social Services. Typically, she solves cases where senior citizens have died alone, leaving no indication of who must handle their estate. This time, however, Claire is reluctantly drawn into a brutal murder case. The local police have been unable to solve the horrific crime, or even decipher the victim’s true identity. A beautiful and enigmatic young blonde, known only as “The White Orchid,” has been shot and dismembered. As Claire is drawn deeper and more intimately into the dead woman’s life, she finds herself taking dangerous chances and pushing personal and professional boundaries. As she gets closer to the truth, Claire must effectively become the charismatic “White Orchid” in order to solve the mysterious crime.
