Storyline

Max is a middle-aged unemployed actor who drives a cab in the daytime, and attempts stand-up comedy at night. His act falls flat until he discovers his talent for retelling the lives of his friends. These friends are all actors: Larry is in a TV soap, Anna is a confident older stage actress, Maggie is his ex-wife who never seems to get past an audition, and Celia is his new younger girlfriend.

Entertaining, funny...well worth a look
14 January 2002 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

As actor-cum-cabbie Max is relaying the events of the recent past to an unknown audience, we meet his acting friends Maggie (your typical 40-year-old woman who can't get a gig), Larry (a conceited TV soap star), Anna (a successful theatre star) and Celia (a mid-20s wannabe who earns money delivering pizzas). It's one of the better exposes on the life behind the scenes of the typical actor - we're not talking Hollywood stars here, or even Australian film stars: this is about the "other" 95% of actors who struggle for employment regularly. It does slip into crime-thriller mode for a little bit, but this is necessary to finish Max's story. All in all, a good film, with a good script and polished performances, particularly from Clayton, Wallace and Drynan. Not for everyone, but that's the beauty of it. 7/10
