Loudmouth Soup | 2005
Catherine and Jason Grant are preparing nervously for their first L.A. dinner party. They have just moved from New York and just sold their first feature film, which was a hit at Sundance. They feel like fish out of water and are intent on making new friends. Jason promises Catherine that he will not allow anyone to talk "business," since it seems like that's all anyone does in Hollywood. It's a promise he intends to keep. Keith Miller, a new acquaintance of Catherine's arrives first, flirting with Catherine and annoying Jason. Soon after, Charlie Baker, a producer who has optioned Jason's new script, arrives with his assistant Kim White. Next at the door is Blake Barker, indie film queen and old friend of Charlie Baker's. The six of them settle into a weird, tense, and complicated dinner. Then a surprise guest knocks, and the party changes course completely.
