Fans of the Mass Effect series and Final Fantasy RPGs have the opportunity to get to know the voice behind a couple of their favorite characters. Los Angeles resident, Ali Hillis voices the always-curious Liara in Mass Effect and the often-cosplayed Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2. She gives life to many other voices in anime and games, from Naruto to the just released Kid Icarus for Nintendo’s 3DS. Though she has been seen on the small and large screens before, this indie film is bound to draw some love from L.A. locals.
In the movie Nesting, Sarah, played by Ali Hillis is married to Neil and in the ever-growing distant past, they were cool kids in the trendy L.A. neighborhood, Silverlake. After a bit of liquid courage they head off to reclaim their irresponsible youth. They end up breaking into their old apartment and squatting for a few days. On their re-entry to reality, they are forced to rely on their resources to avoid the serious consequences of their temporary lapse.
Nesting was featured earlier this year in the Newport Beach Film Festival but now can be seen at Laemmle’s NoHo 7 at 5240 Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood. You can call (310) 478-3836 for showtimes this weekend. If that won’t fit into your plans, the film can be purchased on iTunes by clicking here. It’s always interesting to get to know the actors that give voice to your favorite characters and the often-funny, always down-to-earth Ali Hills is definitely worth getting to know a little better.
