My Art

Directed by Laurie Simmons
Released  2016
Country  USA
Running Time  86 minutes

New York artist Ellie Shine (played by the film’s director, artist Laurie Simmons) is looking to gain inspiration and tranquility as she house-sits for a friend in upstate New York.

Accompanied by her lovable handicapped terrier, Ellie comes of age—middle age—in her new surroundings. She turns the adjoining barn into a studio and stages elaborate re-creations of classic movie scenes, ranging from Some Like It Hot to A Clockwork Orange.

Business unexpectedly evolves into possible pleasure when Ellie invites three locals to participate in her vignettes. Soon, all three men are romantically interested in Ellie, but she’s determined to resist anything that would disrupt her creative process.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
