Meet Monica Velour
Official Selection, Tribeca Film Festival. In this irreverent comedy, awkward teenager Tobe (Dustin Ingram) sets off on a road trip to meet Monica Velour (Sex and the City's 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. But the starry-eyed Tobe, still captivated by his crush, befriends Monica, further complicating her difficult life. Cattrall gives a career-defining performance in this offbeat love story that appeals to the dreamer - and the nerd - in all of us.
The Chicago Premiere of MEET MONICA VELOUR was presented at the Midwest Independent Film Festival on August 2, 2011, earning nominations for multiple Best of the Midwest Awards, including Best Feature Film.
