Fresh off of the success of Hearts Beat Loud and Hereditary, stars Kiersey Clemons and Gabriel Byrne link up for An L.A. Minute, a comedy about success, fame, truth and karma, and ET has the exclusive trailer. The satire revolves around the unexpected meeting of the best-selling "hack" author, Ted Gold (Byrne), and the self-proclaimed artist, Velocity (Clemons).
"Yesterday, I was staging performances for maybe 35 people," Velocity exclaims in the preview after a television stunt launches her into stardom. "Today, I'm a national sensation. What does that say about our culture?"
If An L.A. Minute, from director Daniel Adams, is giving you edgy, satirical A Star Is Born vibes, you'll get a chuckle when Clemons' Velocity is referred to as a "cross between Isadora Duncan and Lady Gaga." An L.A. Minute opens in theaters on Aug. 24.
Here is the movie's official synopsis:
"AN L.A. MINUTE is a satirical look at fame, success, the star-making machinery and the karma that attaches to all those who worship at the altar of Celebrity. Everyone can identify with the dilemma that our protagonist, the best-selling author Ted Gold, faces when Velocity, an avant-garde performance artist and the living embodiment of integrity, rocks his 1% world. But, as is often the case in real life, what you see is not exactly what you get."
