"An homage to the film noir genre of motion pictures that rose to prominence in the 1940s," City of Angels, press notes state, "weaves together the 'real' world of the writer getting his movie made and the 'reel' world of the detective solving his case, and how the two worlds collide."

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
