Storyline

As a little girl, Federica fantasized about having beautiful long hair that would grow back as soon as she cut it, about never-ending cones of cotton candy and about countless adventures that took her to the far side of the world. Now a charming thirty-something-single woman, Federica's fantasies have evolved, adding lovers, stardom, and motherhood to her waking dreams, where Federica continues to press for her everyday life to be as real as the fantasies that invade her. Unfortunately, Federica's daydreams can only provide a meager distraction from the reality she faces. Her career as a successful playwright is heading south, her boyfriend is pressuring her to start a family, a former lover wishes to rekindle an old affair, her sister is barely talking to her, her brother is self-centered and her loving father is terminally ill. And as if to make matters worse, Federica is rich, too rich, and the guilt that consumes her because of it is pushing her over the edge. As Federica ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

It Easier for a camel to pass thru a needle than for a rich woman to make a good film
10 February 2012 | by (New York & Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

Difficult as it may be for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, it is even more difficult for a rich woman to make a good movie.

If anyone needs proof that money can't buy good taste or competent film making, this movie will surely convince them.

The strange attempt at an autobiography lacks any redeeming social or cinematic value.

One can only assume that Carla Bruni, who is not know for her good sense,still had enough sense not to get involved in this debacle.

It seems virtually impossible that they couldn't have gotten competent writers, directors, etc. and created a film with at least a modicum of taste and/or watch-ability.
