Amazing Film
7 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this Film twice at the Miami International Film Festival this spring! I went with several friends and we all agreed it was a Superb Film. It illuminated a very interesting and often overlooked part of the creative process of film making. The film not only educated it's viewers about the the casting process but allowed the viewer to slowly see just how very vital the Casting Director has been in so many well known and groundbreaking films! Most importantly this film made its point with great humor, warmth and feeling. I have been a fan of the Director Tom Donahue for several decades (starting with his amazing first Documentary in Film School).

The editing of the interviews with the many wonderful actors, other Casting Directors, and the film's focus Marion Dougherty was perfect! Providing so many great old clips from the artists' body of work and other films was very entertaining and brought their words to life! I would recommend this film to anybody!
