Robert is an actor who may or may not be himself in this film about acting, aging and the dark side of ambition. Filmed over the course of 18 months, as a documentary crew follows Robert from one failed audition to another, recording in raw detail his every humiliation and small triumph as he searches for that elusive perfect role that will catapult his career into the next level. His vaunting optimism leaps one step ahead of a very real desperation. When he finally scores his dream role in a film directed by the Peter Bogdanovich, his life has reached a profound point of change - though what exactly will that change be? Written by

Robert Margolis screened this film at the Sarasota Film Festival. The sold out show applauded after watching this creative film. Robert convinces the audience that this is a true tale of his life as an actor living in New York, trying to make it big. Well, he made it big with us. Mr. Margolis featured his adorable toddler son in the movie, who has a few cameos. As we watch Mr. Margolis audition for parts, and his response when he hears the results of the the audition, we feel like we know him and hope he gets the part! Throughout the movie you are rooting for your new friend, and hope that you can somehow persuade someone to give him the "big break" he wants so badly. He hit it right on the nose with this one, Good Luck Mr. Margolis.
