Trailer Watch: Heather Graham Says Goodbye to Jerks in Directorial Debut “Half Magic”

“Half Magic”

“I want to have hot sex with someone who’s really nice to me,” says Heather Graham in a new trailer for her directorial debut, “Half Magic.” She stars as Honey, a woman who is sick of dating jerks.

He constantly undermines and dismisses her, at one point answering her question by asking if she’s posing it simply because she’s jealous that he’s more successful than she is. He’s that awful.

While attending a feminist event, Honey meets two new friends (Angela Kinsey and Stephanie Beatriz), both of whom are also unhappy in their personal lives. So Honey suggests the trio “make a pact to be with good guys only” — guys who treat them well like they deserve.
