Boned is a comedy movie from 2015 directed by Laura Lee Bahr. The movie follows the story of a troubled actress, Samantha, played by Bai Ling, who lands a gig acting as the female lead in a low-budget monster movie. As she begins to work with the cast and crew, she quickly realizes that her co-stars are all a little odd. Josh Randall plays the role of the director, who is a narcissist with an inflated sense of self. Deanna Lund plays the role of the producer, who is a bit of a sex addict and is always trying to seduce the male actors on set. Other notable cast members include Rob Zabrecky as the eccentric special effects artist and Geraldine Viswanathan as the naive and inexperienced production assistant. What starts as a seemingly normal shoot quickly devolves into a chaotic and bizarre experience for Samantha. She quickly becomes embroiled in the behind-the-scenes drama and finds herself constantly struggling to keep up with the erratic personalities she is surrounded by. Throughout the movie, Samantha tries to maintain her professionalism and keep her head above water, but it becomes increasingly difficult as the shoot goes on. She deals with sexual advances from the director and producer, disputes between co-stars, and some very questionable on-set practices. Despite the chaotic nature of the shoot, Samantha finds herself growing closer to some of her co-stars. She develops a friendship with the quirky special effects artist and a romantic connection with the male lead, played by Chris McNally. As the shoot comes to an end, Samantha is forced to confront some hard truths about herself and her career aspirations. Overall, Boned offers a satirical glimpse into the strange and often tumultuous world of independent filmmaking. The movie offers plenty of laughs and some genuinely funny moments, but it also has a lot of heart. At its core, Boned is a story about finding your place in the world and staying true to yourself, even when faced with some truly bizarre circumstances. So, if you are looking for a light-hearted take on the struggles of the entertainment industry, Boned is definitely worth a watch.
