reVISIONS is a kaleidoscopic comic romance about a writer trying to win back the love of his life. Screenwriters watch out — the film rips apart standard screenplay formulas. A love story, a secret concealed, a terrorist and a hero, zombie strippers, and maybe, time travel – in this surprising and satirical film, a writer meets an actress and wins her heart with love letters. Later, their relationship begins to fail and he decides to give her a special gift, a screenplay based on those letters. But his creative process also falls apart, and Pirandello-like, his unfinished screenplays, fragments and inner critic come to life to either ruin or save the relationship.
Originally titled LETTERS FROM CAFE TOSCA, the first version of the script was written, while drinking martinis, in that dimly lit San Francisco bar. However, as the film became more visual and evocative, and less drunken-literary, the title was changed to reVISIONS. The ensemble cast features several returning C AND L actors and introduces new ones, led by Bekka Fink, Joseph Estlack,Michelle Drexler, Mikael James, and Ashley Rain Turner as the infamous "Blah Blah Lady".
