Happy In The Valley
USA / 2011 / 93 min / Completed
Once a rock star photographer, Stewart fox’s years of drug and alcohol abuse have relegated him to shooting erotic photos of model/actress wannabes out of his home to make ends meet. In a desperate attempt to get back into the spotlight, he hires a struggling art student to turn the camera on him for a self-published autobiography. But with so many sordid stories and complicated characters pressing buttons all around him, eventually something was bound to snap. “Happy in the valley” is an intense, captivating, and darkly funny look at the desire for fame, the price of overexposure, and the negatives that develop around both.
