WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
American Venus - "Fictionalized" from the true life story of Louise Brooks, the silent movie queen, star of 1929's "Pandora's Box" and lover to Charlie Chaplin, AMERICAN VENUS, is a moving and funny exploration of growing old...ungracefully. Set in 1985 Louise, now a recluse in her shuttered apartment, does daily battle with her primary care-givers, neighbours Phyllis and Frank. To her chagrin, the more she rejects her past, the more her mistakes of youth come back to haunt her.
