Plot Summary

Musician Monty Fagan is going through a rough patch. He's a grown man who lives with his girlfriend in her mom's house. He wants to open a piano bar but suffers from an extreme case of insufficient funds. Things take an interesting turn when Monty gets the chance to fill in as the pianist in a swanky hotel bar, where he meets Olivia, an older, wealthy femme fatale with whom he begins a rather torrid affair. Olivia's presence gives Monty self-confidence, but he worries about becoming a kept man.

    The sense of a film school student doing movie karaoke with his influences is evident throughout Dreamland. show more

    It’s a smart, understated sex comedy, a description that suggests a certain maturity. You’d never suspect it was the first feature from its director, Robert Schwartzman. show more

    A terrific cast...helps create a vivid world, on the fringes of showbiz. But Schwartzman’s observations about music and money mostly stay locked in his head. Dreamland isn’t hard to understand by any means, but it does seem fairly negligible from moment to moment. Neither the situation nor the stakes are exactly life or death. show more
