Laurel Canyon

Fortnight 2002, Feature film, 1h42


Laurel Canyon tells the story of a straight-laced PhD student who moves to Los Angeles with his conservative fiancée to stay at his mother’s house in Laurel Canyon. Complications ensue when his mother Jane, a free-spirited record producer, is there helping a band create a hit single, sleeping with the lead singer, and dancing to the beat of her own rock’n roll morality…
