Queens of Country (2011)

Flying Brian Banana Hammock August 11, 2011 1

Queens of Country is a bit of a fantasy tale, about the prettiest girl in Arizona who loves line dancing and country music. She finds an ipod and feels the owner must be her soul mate. Then she dates Maynard James Keenan, the lead singer of Tool and A Perfect Circle. Wait. What?

Lizzy Caplan plays Jolene Gillis, who sounds like she’s from a country song. She loves country music. LOVES IT. And Ron Livingston plays Rance McCoy, and he wants Jolene. When she finds the ipod of love (my name for it), he tells her that it’s foolish to think the owner is her soul mate, but she won’t be convinced, and sets out to discover the owner. He plans to disenfranchise her of her dream by faking who the owner is, and gets a local mechanic (Maynard James Keenan) to pose and the owner. But I’m pretty sure Bobby Angel (Keenan) falls for Jolene, and they fall in love.

Also, there’s a time machine.

Again, Wait. What?

Queens of Country

Queens of Country was written and directed by Ryan Page and Christopher Pomereke, with some writing also done by Serene Dominic. The two dudes have worked together before, but this is Dominic’s first credit. I’ve never heard of any of the stuff Page and Pomereke have done. Uhhh… Good?
