Film Preview: For A Good Time, Call

(Published in Movie Magic November/December 2012)

Premièring at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, For a Good Time, Call… follows Katie (Ari Graynor) and Lauren (Lauren Powell), two incompatible room-mates who realise how apparent their differences are when they end up sharing an apartment with one another.

After disapproving of her room-mate’s occupation as a phone sex operator, Lauren has no other choice than to join forces with Katie after she loses her job.

Working as a team, the pair soon creates a highly lucrative phone sex business, which sees Lauren eventually join as a second operator.

However just as things are looking up for the two, a betrayal threatens this new-found harmony.

Filmed over 16 days with a budget of only $1.3 million, this low-budget film has gone onto to receive high regards for its emotionally generous appeal.

If there is one number you should call this month, For a Good Time, Call… is the one to dial.
