Storyline

Celebrity couple Joe and Sally Therrian are going through yet another rough stage in their six-year marriage: while Joe's novels have been climbing higher and higher on the best-seller lists, Sally's film career has been steadily sinking into oblivion. Joe's been given the rights to cast and direct the screenplay of his latest book, but rather than resurrect Sally's career by casting her in the lead role, he's given it to Sally's rival, Skye Davidson. Even worse, he's invited Skye to their anniversary bash. Will the marriage, or anything else for that matter, survive the party? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Excellent
21 January 2002 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

One of the best I've ever seen. Deep, succinct, funny, sweet, true. I love ensemble movies - or, maybe what I should say is that I love movies where every actor can act, and is given that opportunity by the director and the script. This was gorgeous. Think I'll write to the directors to thank them for their smarts and humor.
