Movie Info

Echo Park is a rather rundown section of LA inhabited by many young people hoping to break into show business. This lively drama offers the story of three of them. One is an aspiring actress and single mother who works in a run-down dive bar while waiting for her big break. Money is tight and she runs an ad for a roommate. An aspiring songwriter working as a pizza boy responds and moves in. He and the woman are very much attracted and he becomes like a father to her young son. She also takes in an Austrian weightlifter who wants to be on television.more
