An inside look at the business of show business!

Saw the film last night at the "Sundays in the City" film festival here in New York City and was blown away! The acting and directing was top notch and the plot was off the hook! It was simply enjoyable to watch! The celeb cameos are a hoot as well! The film covered a variety of topics within the entertainment business which I, as an actor (as well as anyone for that matter) can relate to. Damon Shalit (Lead actor) has spectacular charisma and really makes the character "Darren" his own,bringing him to three dimensional life. This film has the perfect combination of comedy and drama which makes it work very well for the entire cast and director! If possible, see it! You won't be at all disappointed!
