Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America.
And it’s no wonder with all the data breaches occurring at stores and financial institutions. Paul Bright’s latest feature film STARS IN HIS EYES creates a felonious theft from a different source – a horoscope hotline. And the innocent victims are lovelorn clients seeking new direction in their lives.
To complete the scheme the Mafia frames a chatty phone operator named Bob Hope (James Dixon) who already has a felony conviction for civil disobedience. Meanwhile Hope is falling in love with the hotline’s lawyer who is part of the scam.
What would be an overwrought drama is instead a quirky comedy with witty and playful horoscope ‘experts’ giving relationship advice to heartsick romantics. Unaware of their employer’s scheme the underpaid staff discover they are the perpetrators of a massive crime.
Hope manages to take this devastating development and turn it into unexpected opportunity for the victims and his co-workers. The tricky part is getting away with it.
STARS IN HIS EYES films in Portland Oregon in early spring 2018. Written and directed by Paul Bright. Starring James Dixon, Jonas Israel, Walter Petryk, Samson Syharath, Nate Ayers, and Paul Bright in the role of the dishonest lawyer.
