Angels in Stardust (2014) Feature Trailer
Feature trailer for Angels in Stardust.
Angels in Stardust, is the story of VALLIE SUE, a teenage girl with an imagination as restless and expansive as the western horizon into which she longs to disappear. She lives in an Oklahoma community of pre-fab homes built on a long abandoned drive-in movie lot called Tardust. Surrounded by an odd collection of characters, including a neglectful mother, mysterious Indian and an imaginary (or is he?) cowboy friend, Vallie Sues search for her identity and place in this strange corner of the universe is kicked into overdrive when she runs afoul of some local bad guys.
Vallie Sues mind bubbles like a stew kettle full of stories and fantasies, including an imaginary alter ego, her favorite movie star, THE COWBOY. She converses with him in her refuge: The run-down playground beside the weathered old movie screen. From a distance, it appears shes talking to herself, but we see what only she sees: The Cowboy up on the screen, shootin the breeze with her out along the wide-open plains. Shes got a heap of characters to ruminate on as well: TAMMY, her self-absorbed mother, hot to trot on a mission of security and gratification; PLEASANT, her feisty, slow-witted brother; LORETTA and FRANCINE, a couple of wild teenage friends; TENKILL, the mysterious Indian caretaker of the property; and MICKEY and OLD RAY, two local losers, up to their eyeballs in evil ways.
Vallie Sue struggles for purpose in this shoal of contrary currents. Shes pulled between the spiritual ministrations of church revivals and the temptations of young bucks at the Two Kiss Drive-Up. Shes puzzled by her mothers distaste for Tenkill alongside her brothers fascination with him and shes oppressed by her poor environment while aspiring to become a writer.
This story is a curious combination of fantasy and reality. On the one hand, theres the raw reality of Vallies self-serving mother, the precocious pack of teenage townies and the dangerous neighbors. On the other hand, theres the mythical world of an Imaginary Cowboy, Tenkills animated stories of Indian legend, and the numerous incarnations of Vallies fertile mind. It is at times intense and serious, yet oddly charming and humorous.
Ultimately, it is the story of a young girls self-realization and her struggle for deliverance from the world in which she was born: The world of Tardust.
