I just saw Meet Monica Velour. I had never seen this little movie before. The script was OK, not great. Your basic coming of age movie, BUT what was truly great was Kim Cattrall's performance. I'm not talking about the dialog the film makers gave her to say but her amazingly brilliant and brave immersion into the character of a fallen, aging porn star who lives is squallier and despair. Putting her ego completely aside, she let herself be seen in the most unflattering light I've ever seen her in which was exactly right to bring this character to life. The dialog was not up to her performance and I found her ability to elevated the mediocre melodramatic drivel on that page into fine art inspirational.
I have much new found respect for this wonderful actress that I had always loved from the 80s all the way up to the Sex in the City series and movies. If you haven't seen the film, check it out. You won't be disappointed.
Props and respect to the increadible Kim Cattrall
