The Hottest State
(USA, 2006, 115 minutes)
An aspiring actor falls in love with an aspiring singer, but she eventually breaks his heart. Dull melodrama of modern relationships that takes a very long time to say nothing at all, and doesn't even say that very well despite the earnest performances. A disappointment.
