Facebook: When ordinary becomes extraordinary
A romantic comedy by Heather Grace Stewart
Struggling writer Jessica Page wants more out of her life in the Jersey City suburbs. She wants to be more. She wants someone to notice her. Not as the overtired, worn-out mommy she sees in the mirror every day, but as the sexy, exciting, woman she knows she can be. She and her husband Brian barely have a private moment anymore with three children vying for their attention. When Brian refuses to take Jessica on as a client with his literary agency, it's the last straw. Feeling bored and alone, she logs onto Facebook and joins a celebrity's discussion board, Jack Venture's Hollywood Talk. There, she meets some witty, outgoing people, including People Magazine's most recent Sexiest Man Alive, actor and producer Jack Venture. Jessica and her older sister Jenny make unlikely friendships with board members Alexis, a young, aspiring actress living in Manhattan, and Frank, a middle-aged business man whose wife has been hospitalized for six months. Their ride together -one of friendship, laughter, and self-discovery--ends in some unique twists. It's a journey that reminds us real life isn't like the movies. If we're brave enough to take a leap of faith, we can get movie moments...every now and then.
