A young woman wakes up at dawn on the footprints and handprints of the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood with no idea who she or how she got there. Upon awakening, she wonders if she isn't, in fact, lost in a dream. And perhaps she is...
Regardless of whether she is dreaming or wide awake, Our Gal sets off on her journey, from one person to the next, one famous locale after the other. Among the Hollywood fringe denizens with whom she comes into contact are a pair of tour guides, two super hero impersonators, a Scientology auditor, and a memorabilia shop owner. She also finds herself disquietingly followed by a Stranger who may be real or a figment of her unsteady imagination.

Production and Technical Credits
December 16th, 2011
The list of limited releases this week is much shorter and quite a bit weaker than the last few weeks. Carnage is the only film with a real shot at earning some measure of mainstream success, but its reviews are a little weak for a limited release. There are a couple documentaries that are earning better reviews, Addiction Incorporated and Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel, both of which deserve to find success. However, documentaries rarely manage to hit any major milestones in limited release.

It's another big week for limited releases with a couple that are opening in far more theaters than most limited releases can dream of, plus they are opening with a lot stronger buzz. ... Or to be much more accurate, much louder buzz, as the two biggest releases are not exactly earning top notch reviews. The Conspirator is benefiting from an incredible pedigree, which includes Robert Redford as the director. Meanwhile, Atlas Shrugged: Part I is based on a book by Ayn Rand, who has a committed fan base. Personally, the film I'm most interested in seeing is Daydream Nation, which opens in Canada this weekend and in the United States next month.
