Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat


Echo Park
Directed by Robert Dornhelm
MGM Home Entertainment 1986 DVD/VHS Feature Film

Welcome to California where everyone harbors dreams of making it in show biz. Susan Dey is a single parent and actress who gets her break as a stripper in a telegram service; Tom Hulce is a pizza delivery boy who writes songs in his spare time; and Michael Bowen is an Austrian bodybuilder who is determined to follow in the footsteps of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Echo Park is ably directed by Robert Dornhelm, and writer Michael Ventura does a fine job presenting the trials and tribulations of these vulnerable characters in their quest for success. The performances by the three lead characters are funny, sad, and engaging.
