Kate Loughlin is a vivacious young actress struggling to get her big break in the London film industry. When she lands an audition for the lead role in a massive movie franchise based on the 'Prince of Chaos' novels by legendary author Horatio King, she goes after the opportunity with all guns blazing. However a sleazy agent trying to pimp her to the director Vincent Catalano, pushes her to the other extreme. Determined to prove her strict professionalism, she starts second guessing Vincent's interest in her. Dáithí Carroll is an earnest young filmmaker studying in London. Chosen to direct one of his college's graduation films, he needs a crew. Enter Joanne Webber, a hard-nosed Londoner with a penchant for role-play and her eye on this vulnerable Irishman. Together they recruit a motley crew for their film, and Dáithí enlists Kate to star. A restless Vincent inserts himself onto their set through his friend and casting director Deborah Whitton, who is tutor to the young filmmakers. ... Written by Film Venture London

The Callback Queen, laughter on a drip.
12 September 2015 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Went to see The Callback Queen on a wet stormy night in Dublin but this Romantic Comedy provided the perfect tonic and made me forget my rain- soaked shirt. Although The Callback Queen is extremely funny the plot holds up a mirror to the charlatans, posers and unscrupulous exploiters who can operate in the film industry. The film is very stylish and bright and I would compliment the cinematography, bringing us on an open top bus tour of London's historic and fashionable spots. Amy-Joy Hastings gives a wonderful performance as Kate Loughlin. She plays a very winning role and this showing bodes well for her future screen career. Ger Ryan is hilarious and she has perfect comic timing. The Callback Queen is a new departure for Graham Cantwell. I enjoyed his debut feature Anton very much but The Callback Queen marks him out as an Irish Director to follow. His star is definitely in the ascendant. Now that the storm has abated and my clothes are dry The Callback Queen still has me laughing. Go see.
