The Orange Orange

With Kelly De Martino and John Hawkes.  Shot in Venice, CA. A young woman gets locked out of her home and then hit over the head by a orange.  She searches for her key but ends up finding something else.

"The primary-colored conflicts forced upon the hapless protagonist mirror the internal struggles we face as we constantly juggle demands against desires in our day-to-day living. Maidoff draws audiences to identify with the heroine’s plight, pushing them to their intellectual limits while simultaneously holding their hand and assuring them, which gives this film an endearing quality that helps viewers stop, examine, and better appreciate their own world."
