    Drama

    From the director of HAPPY BIRTHDAY presented at Crossroads

    This delightful romantic comedy focuses on an eager young cop professionally suffering in a beautiful but remote Greek island. Instead of getting to solve major crimes in a big city, Leonidas deals with roadway scofflaws and naked beach tourists. When the local wino – a former soccer star -- is found dead, the cop treats it as a homicide, much to the chagrin of his lazy boss. Clues and suppositions lead Leonidas to many suspects, including Angeliki, a beautiful and famous TV star, who has mysteriously returned to the island. Like RASHOMON or even Hitchcock’s THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY, Georgiou’s film considers multiple points-of-view while trying to uncover “the truth,” all with a heavy dose of humor and just 2-3 too many pratfalls.
