OMG! Meet Monica Velour (in theaters April 8th) looks like such a sweet movie, and also stars Kim Cattrall in a role (an aging pornstar) quite different from Sex And The City‘s Samantha Jones! While on the topic of movies, I haven’t been to see one in a few months, I think this is a record for me! There just hasn’t been anything out lately that has spurred me on, I’ve been all about renting flicks and watching TV. But I might need to go see this one, it’s right up my alley.
In this irreverent comedy, awkward teenager Tobe (Dustin Ingram) sets off on a road trip to meet Monica Velour (Kim Cattrall), his favorite ’80s porn star, at a rare live appearance hundreds of miles away. Instead of the glamorous sexpot portrayed on film, he finds a 49-year-old single mom living in a trailer in rural Indiana, performing at seedy strip clubs to make ends meet. A starry-eyed Tobe, still captivated by his crush, befriends Monica, further complicating her difficult life. Kim Cattrall gives a career-defining performance in this offbeat love story that appeals to the dreamer — and the nerd — in all of us.
