Set in the heart of Los Angeles, the film tells the story of Laura, a dreamer with a thick Italian accent and an even thicker desire to become a Hollywood star.

Laura’s journey unfolds within the charmingly worn walls of a forgotten theater, where a small but loyal fan base of aging Italian immigrants cheers her on.

Despite her Hollywood aspirations, Laura’s own chariot is a ramshackle car that struggles to navigate the city’s bustling streets.

One hectic day, her path collides with Federico, a quirky senior citizen whose weapon of choice? Dentures, which he throws with the aim of Cupid himself.

This chance encounter throws a wrench into Laura’s schedule. But her kind decision to give Federico a ride sets in motion a chain of events that will lead her on a much more fulfilling path.

“Attentions” is a love letter to the power of kindness, reminding us that sometimes the smallest gestures can have the biggest impact.

Laura is a force of nature, an endearing mix of Sophia Loren’s fiery spirit and Mr. Bean’s slapstick humor. All wrapped up with a dash of Italian charm and a bottomless love for pasta.

Federico, on the other hand, is a wise soul whose witty humor transcends language barriers, fostering a connection that transcends age and circumstance.

So, if you’re looking for a feel-good film with a healthy dose of laughter and a heartwarming message, then “Attentions” is a must-watch.
