Hollyshorts Film Festival 2014 Spotlight: Canadian Vixen Saba Homayoon

 alt=  alt=

In view of the constant appreciation of beautiful actresses on this blog, the very cute Saba Homayoon is deserving of praise. Get a glimpse of her at the 2014 edition of Hollyshorts in “The Key”, a comical short that is as much awkward as it’s interesting. Playing the wife of a man who unexpectedly stumbles upon him and his best friend in an act that changes their lives forever! “The Key” being an instrument borne out of male bonding that’s way too physical especially for a married man. It’s going to generate some serious laughter for any viewer…:)

Saba has been raising her gorgeous family and while she’s scaled down her time onscreen, she’s never far from our minds. Her previous work include starring in the pilot of the huge hit “How I Met Your Mother” as well as an episode of “NCIS”. Saba even played a genie on the much beloved show “Charmed” which is one of my favorite growing up. With her sweet voice and exotic features (she has Iranian roots), we would love to see her return be it on TV or any other medium. We do know that Canadian actresses have that undeniable charming facade and let’s hope Saba graces us with her presence once more.

Brooklyn Film Fest 2014 Spotlight: Rising Starlet Lorraine Farris

 alt=  alt=

Lorraine Farris has magnetic features and one of the sweetest voices in the industry which paves the way for instant adoration. She exudes an allure akin to Jacklyn Smith of Charlie’s Angels fame and just like Jacklyn who starred in the TV movie as Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, she too has portrayed the elegant former First Lady. Just last month, she played Jackie Kennedy at the Lion Theater where she was lauded for giving Jackie O a fascinating depth. She will captivate once more in the short film “Off and Away” as Breann, a woman who loses herself after the passing of her husband. Watch the trailer (above) and even though there’s minimal dialogue, viewers will be curious to find out where the story is heading! If you missed the screening at The Brooklyn Film Festival on June 3rd, there will be a second one happening on June 6th. This is a gem of a film so make sure not to miss it!

Did you know “Natural Born Killlers”, the notorious film where Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis brought sheer mayhem was Lorraine’s first film? In the role of Pinky, she ended up being brutally murdered by Det. Jack Scagnetti (Tom Sizemore). Seeing how she has multiple projects on her plate, 2014 is looking to be a bright year for the lovely Lorraine. One of her notable supporting roles was in “Surviving Family”, an indie fave and she was wonderful throughout as a very troubled woman. With so many film festivals running concurrently right now and dazzled by a bevy of talented indie talents, let’s give praise to Lorraine. She may just be Brooklyn’s Finest and in the coming months an enchanter of hearts…:)
