LaLa Land was a brilliant musical snapshot of a girl hoping to get a shot at stardom: “an actress moves to Hollywood to pursue her dreams for four years.” Whiskey is LaLa Land stretched over three decades meets Its A Wonderful Life. Whiskey, our titular heroine, ages gracefully as she survives 25 years of Hollywood sexism, heartbreak and loss. But judgment day comes shockingly in a Titanic struggle as WHISKEY faces her demons. Ala Tarantino's mixology of real and fictional life stories, Whiskey deftly blends real life 1995 vignettes of young Leo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jared Leto with an epic climax in Malibu. It's been 25 years since Matt Damon suggested to CeCe the idea of writing an autobiopic about her life as a struggling actress in Hollywood.
Yeah, the movie could have been made years ago but perhaps, like a good Scotch Whiskey, it needed to age a bit.
