We had the chance to chat with actress, writer and director Laura Jean Marsh about her latest film Giddy Stratospheres which will be available on digital platforms September 14, 2021 via Gravitas Ventures. Written and directed by Marsh, she also plays the role of Lara.
Giddy Stratospheres Official Synopsis
Daniel and Lara, our Giddy Indie Kid Soul Mates, spiral in the center of the storm and broken glass that was the 00’s Indie Music Scene. Beautiful, mischievous and disheveled, and on a quest for the ultimate Euphoria, Hedonism and Excitement that comes with dancing and thrashing on the front row to your new favorite song by your new favorite band. They don’t miss a gig. They don’t miss a beat. After the furious joy of dancing all night to a smorgasbord of incredible live music, then the DJ playing tune after tune of massive indie hits….looms darker spells in the shadows of the after party. The laughter has gone and is replaced by closed curtains blocking the morning light and the whispered shame of over-indulgence. How far can they push it, when they don’t want the night to end? Daniel and Lara, don their new boots, their perfectly scrawled eyeliner and ripped tights and indulge in a night of Pure Euphoria. Dancing on the tables in an infamous North London Live Music Pub, to their favorite band ‘The Long Blondes’… One week after getting their lyrics ‘ Giddy Stratopsheres’ tattooed on their fingers. At 6am they spill out of an after party to head straight to Lara’s Grandmothers funeral. Lara hasn’t slept and is clutching a poem she wrote when she was 10. Daniel is desperate for Lara to remember the events from the night before. Why is she in denial?
