When she shows up on his doorstep, he seemingly is the answer to her problems. He is rich, he is famous, he is welcoming. He is also everything her mother (Diane Ladd) warned her of, a manipulative, alcoholic, opportunist who sees the perfect “subject” standing before him… a woman about to lose everything.
