Storyline

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

Treat yourself to this little gem.
3 October 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I haven't enjoyed a film as much as this in a very long while.

Cleverly constructed, cleverly realised, cleverly nuanced, very well cast, acted, directed, and written.

I admit it took me a little while to get in to it, but once I was in, I was totally hooked and completely swept away by the humour in particular, and found myself laughing uncontrollably many, many times.

That's a rarity in this day and age, and it takes a special film to do that.

This film is one such.

It will be well worth your while!
