Desperate to meet new girls, six down-on-their-luck guys come up with the ultimate plan to hook up - cast a fake movie. When tons of hot chicks show up for the audition, it's a matter of who's willing to go the farthest to get the part.

To be perfectly frank, I did not have the highest expectations for "Look at Me" when I started watching the film, yet within the first few minutes I found myself completely sucked into the story. The story centers on six individuals, who are coupled up at various point in the film, and deals with the baggage and insecurities that hamper their relationships.
The film is set and shot in and around New York City. It is gritty with nothing being overly bright, and features plenty of seedy bars, dingy apartments, and grimy streets. The atmosphere works well for the story, which drops in on the characters at a pivotal point in their lives and leaves just as they are beginning the next chapter. In many ways, the film could easily serve as the basis for a premium cable series as there is plenty of material left to be mined.
Lastly, of particular interest to fans of the former webseries "lonelygirl 15," Yousef Abu-Taleb, the webseries former star, produced and stars in "Look at Me" along with fellow cast mate Katherine Pawlak and Bree herself, Jessica Rose. Katherine Pawlak's performance is particularly noteworthy as she manages to dominate and pull focus in every scene in which she is featured.
