For years now, George (Howard Nash) has been hosting workshops for budding screenwriters at the local community center, workshops that really promise little to no gain for the attendees, as George himself has long lost control of the group and his occasional guest speakers, including a homeless man (Julian Mathis Brenner), a female pornstar (Dyanne Mercante), a depressed clown or even salespersons for an auditioning app, less and less hit the mark of helping anyone in their careers. As a consequence, all attentees are either frustrated or just amazingly bored ... or both, really. But how have things gotten that way?

It was 10 years ago when George, then himself a budding screenwriter, has started a group of like-minded hopefuls who wanted to break into the film industry - and even if none of their projects ever got anywhere, and neither of them were really prolific writers to begin with, the community feeling of being in this together gave all of them some kind of reinforcement ... that is until new recruit Sylvia (Shay Gines) arrived on the scene, and George took an immediate liking to her - a "liking" that bordered lust. Now George was married though, and insisted on walking the straight and narrow - but his being attracted to Sylvia was just too much for him to handle, and what once had been a screenwriters' club was now becoming more and more George's own soap opera, especially once his wife (Ellen Reilly) found out about Sylvia ...

The flashback scenes are actually from the 2004 featurette The Meeting by Blake Lawrence, that featured some of the same cast as the newly shot scenes.

 

Basically, The Meeting Chronicles is really good fun, in parts because despite all the exaggerations along the way, it just rings true, and I'm sure everybody who has ever been in some amateur group of anything will find at least some of the film directly relatable. Plus despite the occasional misfire, most of the comedy is really funny. But what makes the movie more than its humour is its grounded characters who play it mostly straight and thus make the film feel real, all of which makes of course for pretty good entertainment.
