May 16, 2016

Rewrit­ing the myth of the muse in a man­ner plac­ing it firm­ly in Jew­ish tra­di­tion and the Torah, Dark Muse is the fan­tas­ti­cal sto­ry of Vi Gold and Lee Mar­vin, two women who have the unique abil­i­ty to either inspire the gift­ed, cre­ative few or dri­ve them to sui­cide. Vi hates her role and would do any­thing to live a nor­mal life; Lee is casu­al about her fate and about vio­lence. As an uneasy friend­ship devel­ops between the two, their dual paths are crossed by would-be lovers and a rab­bi who becomes involved in their des­tinies — to his own demise.
