Ben, a conservative Jewish transplant from Ohio, grapples with his identity and dating life in a new city. He forms an unlikely friendship with fellow dancer Craig, unaware of the deeper connection they share. Meanwhile, Jason, a stand-up comic with dreams of stardom, navigates the cutthroat world of Hollywood, seeking success at any cost. His world shifts when he meets Dan, a former alcoholic actor who challenges his priorities. Corey, the eccentric friend of Ben and Jason, embarks on his own journey of self-discovery, donning gender-bending outfits and pursuing a job as an assistant to the enigmatic actress Mary Reynolds.

 

 

In “The Wishmakers,” while the plot may take a backseat, writer-director David Grotell crafts a heartfelt narrative centered around the lives of three young gay men, infused with earnestness, charm, and humor. The film delves into their individual struggles, aspirations, and relationships, creating a rich tapestry of interconnected stories.

Ari Sorrentino shines as Ben, a newcomer to West Hollywood grappling with his identity and navigating the complexities of dating in a new city. His journey of self-discovery is both relatable and endearing, especially as he forms an unexpected bond with fellow dancer Craig, portrayed with depth by Scott Hislop.

Justin Martindale delivers a standout performance as Jason, a sharp-witted stand-up comic whose pursuit of fame intersects with his personal life in unexpected ways. His dynamic with Gregory Zarian’s Dan adds depth to his character, highlighting the complexities of love and ambition.

Matt Achine brings a unique energy to the role of Corey, injecting the film with humor and heart as he navigates his own path to success. His interactions with Sally Kirkland’s larger-than-life character, Mary Reynolds, provide moments of both comedy and poignancy.

Supporting characters, such as Drew Droege’s Jake and Michael E.R. Walker’s Seth, add depth and humor to the narrative, contributing to the film’s overall charm and wit.

While “The Wishmakers” may lack traditional comedic set pieces, its humor lies in its nuanced exploration of everyday situations and interactions. Drawing inspiration from shows like “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Louie,” the film’s conversational writing style and understated humor create a refreshing and engaging viewing experience.

Overall, “The Wishmakers” is a delightful comedy that celebrates friendship, love, and the pursuit of dreams in the vibrant backdrop of Los Angeles. With its heartfelt performances and witty script, it’s a film that resonates long after the credits roll.
