About this movie

"Mere Oblivion" is an uplifting, family-friendly, feel-good movie about a small town's eccentric, self-proclaimed brilliant dramatist who brings art and passion into the lives of three young people, each of whom immersed in individual family dilemmas, had never had any interest in art. She ultimately leads them to create their own ridiculous though earnest Shakespearean theatrical troupe, forging a new bond of family among themselves. Wendy Marlowe Miller has spent her life pursuing her artistic dreams, though without yet having achieved the recognition and respect she feels her talents deserve. By the end of my movie though, with her new theatrical company's production of "Hamlet" (such as it is) completed, she has proved to her small town and to herself that her years of artistic endeavor have not been in vain. Not only has she finally created a forum for the artist in her to express itself, but she has changed the lives of the three young people she has taken on as students by together bringing, as she says at the beginning of the movie, "a little light into this miserable world with our dramatic talents."

It was my hope in making this movie that this manner of comedic “edu-tainment” could make just a small contribution to the appreciation of the great classics of literature
