Description: Two strangers discover you really can find anything at a convenience store -- even love -- in this engaging independent romantic comedy. Mike (Michael Gilio) is an aspiring actor stuck in a small town who has big plans of moving to Hollywood so he can strike it rich. One night, while on his way into a corner store, he meets Didi (Lara Phillips), a pretty but aimless girl hanging out in the parking lot. Mike and Didi strike up a conversation, and she discovers there's a big dose of self-doubt lurking beneath his confident exterior. Mike, on the other hand, finds that the longer he talks to Didi, the more he finds himself thinking she might be a good reason to stick around. Kwik Stop was the debut feature from writer and director Michael Gilio, who also co-stars as Mike; the film premiered at the 2001 Los Angeles Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
