The Million Dollar Hotel is a story of friendship, betrayal and the overwhelming power of unconditional love. A gang of unique outcasts and misfits live in a downtown Los Angeles flea-pit, known locally as the "Million Dollar Hotel."

Jeremy Davies

Their story is seen through the eyes of a lovesick innocent named Tom Tom (Jeremy Davies), who has fallen head over heels for the tarnished street angel Eloise (Milla Jovovich). As their relationship develops, the Million Dollar Hotel becomes the focus of a police investigation.

One of its residents, the engaging junkie Izzy, has come to a grisly end. To the amazement of his neighbors, he is revealed to have been the son of a billionaire media magnate. Every denizen of the Million Dollar Hotel falls under suspicion in the inquiry led by FBI hard-liner, Detective Skinner (Mel Gibson).

As Skinner's investigation proceeds, the lines between murder and suicide, sane and deranged, become very blurred indeed.

"The Million Dollar Hotel" features music produced by Bono, including songs by Bono and U2.
