Trailer Talk: ‘Sparkle’


Sam Sparkes (Shaun Evans) is 22 and desperately wants to move to London to work in public relations. After moving there and getting a job as a waiter, Sam meets Sheila (Stockard Channing), and she hires him to be her personal assistant. Oh, and also her lover, apparently. But things get a little twisted when Sam starts to have feelings for Kate (Amanda Ryan).

Other characters include Sam’s singing mother Jill (Lesley Manville) and Vince (Bob Hoskins), a guy who helps Sam get his waiter job and is creepily obsessed with Jill.

The trailer is pretty quick and a little all over the place, and it’s really hard to understand some of those British accents, especially Sam’s. Watch it a couple times to decide if “Sparkle” is worth your while.

“Sparkle” was released on DVD Sept. 7.

    Gotta love Stockard Channing ever since GREASE and Anthony head was Giles in Buffy! LOL, those two facts made me laugh and want to see this movie.
