Here’s a brief synopsis: “A man struggling to find purpose in life (Olson) becomes enlightened by an ailing drunk widow (Cortez).” Reviewing the movie, Jeff York of The Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle wrote, “FishbowlCalifornia is both a LOL comedy and a moving character study. It couldn’t be savvier in its study of the eccentrics who inhabit Los Angeles, or the universal vulnerabilities of the human condition,” and “Katherine Cortez and Steve Olson give the kind of performances the Independent Spirits were made for.” Jim Alexander of The Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle wrote, “A film with a perfect blend of creative, smart, touching and hilarious.”
Jenna Willis, Jared Kusnitz, Josh Sussman and Lucas Krystek round out the ensemble cast. Gravitas Ventures will release “Fishbowl California” on all major VOD platforms on May 1st, 2018 including Amazon and iTunes. Pre-ordering is available now on iTunes.
