Watch the full movie here:

FIX takes you from Beverly Hills to Watts, and places in between, in one day, as documentary filmmakers Bella ((Olivia Wilde) and Milo race to get Milo’s brother Leo (Shawn Andrews) from jail to rehab before 8pm, or Leo goes to prison for three years.

Inspired by true events, we follow our trio of main characters from a suburban police station in Calabasas through East LA chop-shops, mansions in Beverly Hills, rural wastelands, and housing projects in Watts

Reactions

“Brash, cool and energetic … a wild ride.” – Variety

“A bold new style and talent.” – Oliver Stone

“Ruspoli has succeeded in creating a film that not only compliments Los Angeles’ multi-faceted landscape, but meditates on it. While FIX is everything one would hope – a frenetic, Odyssey-like journey through an underbelly of drug culture and addiction, it’s when the film reaches moments of silence that its true voice speaks clear, deeply exploring notions of family, loss, and ultimately redemption.”

– Daniel Casey, Slamdance Programmer

“Fix has the gritty energy of ‘Go’, the speedy with of ‘Arrested Development’ and a magnificent visual panache!” – IndieWire

“Funny, sad, dangerous, endearing; all the hallmarks of a big-money blockbuster are here, delivered with an effortless reality and spontaneity that no budget can buy …” – M. Bradley, edhat.com
