Australian director Stephen Elliott's film "Eye of the Beholder" failed at the boxoffice and was trounced by critics. Why the film was so problematic is revealed in Lizzy Gardner's documentary, Killing Priscilla. While Elliot tries to secure funding and actors for his film, Hollywood suits advise and undermine his self-confidence and artistic vision. Shot as filming took place, Gardner's camera crew follows Elliott as he must juggle a shooting schedule, non-existent budget, and wanning interest in his film from Canada to San Francisco, Arizona, D.C. and London. A must for any film maker who dreams of Hollywood as the golden opportunity to make a career. Great snips between star Ewan McGregor and Elliot in rehersal for the film.
