Overview
"A pithy, ironic L.A. noir full of broken dreams and snappy repartee." -Stewart O'Nan
After years of working a dead-end job at an insurance company in New Jersey, Hugh Waters finally sells his screenplay to a major Hollywood studio. But when the young, Ivy League hotshot Hedda Chase takes over as top executive, she finds his story violent, unconvincing, and riddled with clich?s, and quickly pulls the plug on the deal. So Hugh hops on a plane to L.A. hoping to talk things over-or perhaps he'll find another way to prove that his script isn't so implausible after all...
Evocative of Patricia Highsmith, and set against high-voltage backdrops from Hollywood to Abu Dhabi, "A Stranger Like You" is a taut and terrifying thriller about the lengths to which we'll go to make our dreams come true.
