"Shades of Day" received Gold Award in Los Angeles Neo Noir Novel, Film & Script Festival. The film is a suspenseful Hollywood fable based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky's classic novella "White Nights" (considered one of the greatest love stories ever written), but here transported to modern-day Los Angeles. It's the first installment of our ambitious Dostoyevsky-Los Angeles Project, which also includes "Notes from the New World" (completed).
The film crosses and re-crosses the thin line that separates tragedy from comedy. It introduces us to the enchanting LINDA, whose life is centered around a planned reunion with her former lover PAUL. Her plans change in remarkable ways as she encounters an extraordinary cast of characters, including a new lover and a movie producer who is being pursued by the Mafia.
