From writer/director Keith Bearden comes a film about growing up, growing old and opening your heart against all odds. MEET MONICA VELOUR, starring Kim Cattrall, Brian Dennehy, Keith David, and newcomer Dustin Ingram, is an offbeat love story for the dreamer — and the nerd — in all of us.
Tobe Hulbert’s life sucks. He’s a recent high-school graduate living in Washington with his grandfather, working out of a vintage hot dog truck, and his only friend is his overweight 12-year-old neighbor. In the dog-days of summer, his one escape is obsessively watching videos of his fantasy girl: Monica Velour, the most famous adult film star of the 1970s.
Browsing Monica’s fan site one afternoon, Tobe discovers that she is doing a rare live appearance at a strip club in rural Indiana. With nothing stopping him, he hits the road to meet the woman of his dreams. Expecting his fantasy, he is instead confronted with a harsh reality: Monica is a 49-year-old mom, living in a trailer park, and her world is nothing like he imagined it would be. The last thing Monica needs is another complication in her life, but Tobe is determined to do whatever it takes to get close to her.
