"Ellie Parker" is a day in the life of an Australian actress (whom the film is named after) trying to survive in Hollywood. The audience gets a voyeuristic view of Ellie's trials & tribulations while en route to various auditions throughout the day, as well as the many people she encounters.
The short version of the film premiered at the Sundance 2001 film festival. 'Scott Coffey' and Naomi Watts went back and shot more footage and turned the short into a feature length film. It was released in 2005.
