A dark and funny tale of an ambitious young woman at a crucial turning point in her career and her relationship with her bi-polar mother. Louise (Julia Garcia Combs) is an insurance underwriter living in Los Angeles with her mother, May (Karen Black), who has recently been evicted from her Section 8 apartment after the building was condemned. May's shaky grip on reality begins to loosen when she becomes aware of the close relationship between Louise and her trailblazing boss, Catherine (Barbara Bain), whom Louise admires and adores. Catherine is secretly fighting cancer and has an estranged relationship with her own daughter, and reaches out to Louise as a surrogate. At the same time, Catherine is pushing Louise to accept a big promotion, which will compel Louise to relocate to New York. Things heat up when May and Catherine meet by chance on Mother's Day and an alarming confrontation ensues. Throw into the mix a budding romance between Louise and the local bartender, and we find ourselves in the midst of a gripping story of the joys and heartaches of mother-daughter relationships, and the intense emotional lives of three remarkable women living in the shadow of the Hollywood sign.

Press Quotes

Nothing Special is a raggedly charming indie with a strong central performance by Julia Garcia Combs amid a story set in a (literally) crazy Hollywood. A character-driven showcase for the talents of helmer Angela Garcia Combs, pic will likely draw minimal theatrical returns, although key perfs by vets Karen Black and Barbara Bain should add to the comedy's camp quotient.

     —John Anderson, Variety

Karen Black is nothing short of spectacular... Barbara Bain is ideally cast... Laura Karpman's original score is a marvelous array of color, texture and shading... Everything is done with such loving care and sense of style that the appetite is whetted

     —James Wegg, Rotten Tomatoes

This courageous film is about nuance and introspection - a deliberate, careful and ultimately loving look at the dynamics among three women.

     —Sylvie Drake, Film Critic, Los Angeles Times

An amazing filmmaker. Truly remarkable. Karen Black and Barbara Bain are terrific! Julia Garcia Combs has a wonderful ease, charming, marvelous.

     —Henry Jaglom, Writer/Director

I really loved the movie. Not a single car chase, not a fire ball, not a shooting, merely closely connected human beings scratching and chaffing and struggling with that thing called life. I'm reminded that it's the simplest stories that pack the most

     —Richard Walter, Chair Dept. Screenwriting UCLA
