Charlie Barker (Stephen Barker Turner) is a struggling actor who does not want to compromise his artistic integrity. His mate, Stella (Daphne Zuniga) supports him. While attending a elitist ritzy party in Manhattan, Charlie is seduced by Clea (Heather Gordon), a siren in a red dress. Much like the fate of an Alice Cooper protagonist, Charlie Barker's situation goes from bad to worst..or so it seems.
Thanks to Heather Gordon's energetic performance and excellent line delivery, **Seducing Charlie Barker** works as sophisticated entertainment. The film gets dark, yet there is many plot twists that takes a routine downfall movie into a different philosophical plane.
