good film
29 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just watched this film with my husband and we found it to be very interesting. Yes, there are lots of characters, and many of them have small parts. We found the movie to have a good plot line, that kept us involved with the story line through to the end. We have no experience with the fashion world, but had no trouble keeping up with all the business deals going on. Jeff Goldblum's character was well played as the "talent scout" who gets wounded in the end, and the mother daughter storyline was also well done. The attempted introduction of an "urban" clothing line to a prominent traditional menswear design house was a good twist. I like to see known actors in smaller roles. I would recommend it to others.
