review by
Mike Haberfelner

Milla (Puolakanaho), an actress from Finland, has been accepted into a Hollywood acting school, so she decides to leave everything, including her young daughter, behind to try to make her dream come true and move to LA to become an actress. But her dreams are soon squashed, as it doesn't take her long to feel alone in the big city, the acting school isn't what she had expected and seems to be more like group therapy than anything helping her in her craft, auditions are few and far between, and roles even more so. Her only friend in LA is Alexis (Kerouac) a transgender writer working on a script about his experiences - something Arlene (Parness) is very interested in, who has dreams of becoming a powerful producer but presently she's living in her car. Another narrative thread features a stand-up comic (Miska Kajanus) who has fallen from grace but has taken to mentoring a young female stand-up (Sarah B. Jacobs) in an effort to redeem himself. Yet another subplot tells the story of an Instagrammer (Kentrell Newton) who has fallen in love with his sketch partner, not seeing that his feelings are not reciprocated. And these are just some stories that make up the real Hollywood ...


Even if not all of us want to become Hollywood actors, Someone Somewhere offers a story (or rather set of loosely connected stories) about the painful side of following one's dreams that's pretty much universally relatable, and it works quite so well because it doesn't try to create a larger-than-life narrative, rather presents its stories as slices of life, with sometimes comedic, sometimes tragic edges, but a certain light-footedness to all of them. And a rather grounded cast really brings the film to life, making this entertainment that  is bound to strike an emotional chord with you.
