The Californians – Slick, smug developer Gavin Ransom has a dream: make millions by blanketing the coastal hills of northern California with flamboyant, mini mansions. His sister Olive a raving environmentalist, thinks otherwise, and aims to stop her brother’s land gobbling plans. When Zoe Tripp a striking beautiful folk singer, joins Olive’s cause, Gavin gets thrown for a loop, falling hard for the striking young woman with the golden voice. Caught between Olive’s righteousness and Gavin’s affection, the idealistic and innocent Zoe, coached by her parents and a maternal environmentalist must choose between a cause she’s grown up supporting, or the affections of a man who stands for everything she believes is wrong.
Director: Jonathan Parker Stars: Noah Wyle, Illeana Douglas, Kate Mara
I must have read a good review on this movie for me to have ordered it from Netflix. We could not even make it through the first 45 minutes. Rarely do we stop watching a movie, but really, we had to. It is supposed to be a satire, but it was just bad acting and blah.
A real estate developer is trying to build mini-mansions in the beautiful rolling hills in central California, and a group of people are trying to stop him. And he falls in love with one of the main protesters.
If possible, miss this movie.
