Fish out of Water

What happens when you come face to face with a true genius?

Fish out of Water...

Two British women, likely best friends, in a nation struggling to salvage the Modern day Michelangelo from the ashes of creative genius, grow into spiritual enlightenment, trying desperately to break the shackles, but still pursuing the sprit of life. Holly and Shirley Yanez, two women from Yorkshire England, embark on a journey to Los Angeles and in a moment of temporary insanity, end up marring good looking brothers and life changes in a split second. The marriages end. The money runs out and the women find themselves with only an art collection from days gone by and an American express card, perfect for a small business start up.

They open an art gallery in Manhattan beach, California but dont sell one single piece in almost a year but something amazing does happen, the women found themselves a genius. A Russian Fresco master, one of five in the universe, starving to death in a place called Inglewood, desperate to start a Fresco school and in need of some exposure for his work.

The challenge is on, as the women from Yorkshire set out to catch the attention of Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and other high profile Hollywood royalty, to persuade them to help start The First American Fresco School. Sounds simple but what actually happens is far from simple and they end up enticed, embraced and embedded in the fabulous world of Miramax Films with no money, no plan, no clue but as always, a solid purpose.

Getting to a man like Harvey Weinstein is not as easy as one might think, even with good James Bond skills and gold Gucci high heels but with relentless faxes, emails and love letters to their hero, the women finally break in to his world and their fantastic journey begins.

Follow their dream and be prepared to laugh out loud, as their internship in Hollywood has them pitching, bitching, bothering and blagging everybody from Disney to MTV but what happens when all hope is dashed, all doors firmly closed and all money spent? Does Hollywood close ranks, mask all their pain and force them out of town or can the women dig down deep and somehow convince Harvey of their good intentions.

As the women prepare to leave for England with their self published memoir, it is finally dawned on top executives like Michael Eisner and Robert Iger, this hilarious and fascinating story actually happened and the little pink treasure Looking for Harvey Weinstein shows a clear view of the fall of Miramax from the cheap seats.

Whether it has anything to do with the fall of Harvey Weinstein has yet to be seen but the women believe he will rise again like the phoenix. Outsiders have shown interest in the film rights as book sales increase, with Harvey Weinstein at the helm, this story is destined to become the greatest buddy, farcical, satirical comedy this century, if by this century one means 2005.
