Ever see a movie that you really had no feelings for? A movie that was not good or bad and that you couldn’t make heads or tails out of? Well, if you are interested in having such an experience, by all means grab yourself a copy of Garden Party.
Garden Party is a direct-to-DVD feature from Lionsgate that follows a group ambivalent youngsters in Hollywood. There is 15-year-old April (Willa Holland), who is trying to escape her broken home and make something of herself but ends up just taking her clothes off for some skivvy photographer. Along the way we meet Nathan (Alexander Cendese), a dancer from Wisconsin who may or may not be gay; Sammy (Erik Smith), a musician on the rise; Todd (Richard Gunn), an artist; and Sally St. Clair (Vinessa Shaw), who grows weed in her house and sell houses for a living. They all have nothing in common but the dream to make it big in LA LA Land.
