LA Event: 4th Annual Hollywood Enchanted Nights

Multi-talented artist and event host, Mary Harris and her partner, Dorian
It was great fun to join the Rich Girls TV Production crew, lead by Joy Parris to cover the 4th Annual Hollywood Enchanted Nights event hosted by the multi-talented artist and inspirational singer & songwriter, Mary Jane Harris. The goal of the event is to bring local LA artists together in a fun and safe space to share their gifts of art, fashion design, beauty, and music, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the RAISMUP MOVEMENT, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to uplifting and helping others to become their best selves.

The event took place at the Little Amsterdam Coffee & Art cafe at 1412 S. Redondo Blvd. on Saturday, November 9th. Along with a red carpet, beautiful art, great food, and excellent music, there was also a fashion show featuring two local designers, Phree and Macy Lee. Some of the guests in attendance were: Joshua Mock - Owner of Little Amsterdam Coffee & Art; Aaron Wilson - Motivational Speaker; Nasreen Bhatt - Innersoul Hair Oil; Shay Phillip - Steel pan performer; Staci Alexzarderia - Singer, Ashley Edwards - Sould on Nails; Shay Franklin - Director/Producer; Bradford Downs - Musician; Chuk - Actor; Macy Idzakovich - Lemon Perfect; Tyler Jacob - Singer/model; and Rick Star - Singer/model.

Quick Film Review: Jojo Rabbit (A-)

Quick Film Review: The Lighthouse (B+)

I attended the Q&A for The Lighthouse at The Landmark in LA, and was in the second row. Overall, I was very intrigued by the film, it was a crazy mind trip and the black and white film gave it a more claustrophic, isolating feel to the film. Listening to director Robert Eggers, and actors Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson discuss the film making process, helped me to better understand the mystical elements that were incorporated into the story, and the great attention to detail that was given to make the set and props more authentic. The Lighthouse is a film that needs to be seen several times to truly appreciate it. I would like to see it again as it's one of those films that's like a bottle of fine wine - you need to give it space and time to "breathe" to fully enjoy it. Willem Dafoe, as usual, was brilliant, but The Lighthouse was Robert Pattinson's time to shine and showcase that he's a serious actor whose work we can enjoy well outside from his breakout role in the Twilight franchise.

Quick Film Review: Parasite (A+)

It's rare that I feel a film is so exquisite that it deserves an A+ grade, and Parasite is that film. I was apprehensive going into watching this movie because of the rabid hype since it won the Palme d'Or from Cannes Film Festival back in May. I missed it by two days at the New York Film Festival, and I finally saw it this past weekend with a Q&A from the brilliant director, Bong Joon-ho!
