King of California

Tom's Recommended Film of the Week


King of California

It's been a while since I wrote a film recommendation, so please, loyal readers, accept my apologies. Know however that I've been watching films, and making notes and hope to get back on track right now, with a recommendation for a quirky and endearing little film titled King of California.

The story is simple, yet classic, the acting has flair, the plot holds a viewers attention, plus there is a significant coin related element in the mix. Mike Cahillhas done very well in his directorial debut. King of Californiais both encouraging and uplifting and yet it offers that odd humor which many of us love so well. Evan Rachel Woodis marvelous in her confusion over, love for and frustration with Michael Douglas whose energy runs wild in this film. The package combines for a fun little life journey story which I think everone will enjoy.
