    Noted, I'm stealing this idea from the Edmonton boards, hopfully they wont mind.
    So, Trying to keep to the plot, story, and characters explain in 25 words, or less.

    Here's mine:

    Velvet Goldmine:

    Young Reporter, Glam Rock, Curt Wild, played by Ewan McGregor. Scenes not ment for the weak minded. Good Music and Costumes.

    Thanks again to the Edmonton Boards for the idea!
