Texas Film auditions – BLISSFUL LIES

Casting notice posted on auditionsfree.com, casting location: Fort Worth, TX

This film is about the close ties and bonds between a group of 5 college-aged people who find the limits of their relationships are tested when secrets and lies begin to rise to the surface. A powerful lesson emerges out of one group member’s secret which is the idea of age being “just a number,” and we find in the film this is an important lesson in trying to understand the idea of a misunderstood relationship. My film will show this concept of age being “just a number” when we explore a relationship baring the motto of “forbidden fruit” between a prominent female figure in society and a younger man. The film also explores a typical double standard women are often faced with in society; the idea is it is acceptable for a man to do things women cannot. The main conflict of the film is found in multiple secrets between members which ultimately leave them all wondering if it is too much to move forward as the “family” they once were. Ultimately, I want the audience to feel a strong connection to each character and the secret they are desperately clinging to. I hope to help the audience relate to their being faced with decisions in life which warrant a very difficult response. Life can be messy and at times we should do what feels wrong, because in the end it may turn out to be the best decision we could have made.
