How far would you go to make your dreams come true? For budding writer and filmmaker Noah Spaeth, being a Production Assistant in director Dominick’s Bambach’s new avant-garde film isn’t enough. Neither is watching Dominick have an affair with the lead actress, the gor- geous but troubled Nevie Wyeth. For Noah’s dream is to get both the film and Nevie in the end whatever the cost. And this obsession may soon become a reality once Dominick’s spurned wife Isadora reveals her femme fatale nature with a seductive plot to get rid of her husband for good.
Set against a New York City where a drug called Fast sweeps through the streets and tattoos of yellow circles appear on a flood of glamorous girls, Slow Down is a cross between the noir styl- ing of James M. Cain and the dark satire of Bret Easton Ellis.
Slow Down is a thrilling page-turner that holds a mirror up to a media-saturated society that’s constantly searching for the fastest way to get ahead, regardless of consequences.
