Great entertainment from a small gem!
16 October 2019 | by gregory_j_harrisonSee all my reviews

This was an excellent film. Surprising that this little gem of a production hasn't received the attention it deserves! The casts' performances were stellar; they did a remarkable job projecting the industry's idiosyncrasies from showcasing the struggles of talent up through the decision-making dicta of studio executives searching for talent. A very well done mockumentary along the line of "Spinal Tap" for actors!
