Delightful look at being a woman in a Hollywood support business
22 October 2014 | by (North Dakota, USA) – See all my reviews

As I watched this story about the voice-over community, I remembered a saying about academia, "The competition and politics are so fierce because there is so little to fight over." For most of us, voice-overs are background noise, but they are a life for the people who do them. I love how well Lake Bell uses this disparity to tell the stories of several of the key players, their support systems, and their families. It's also laugh-out-loud funny because Bell and her talented cast have created interesting characters who can bring the comedy without being stereotypes. (Well, actually there are two stereotypes, but they are deliberate and Shakespearean, if one remembers who Shakespeare wrote his plays to amuse.) I recommend the movie not just because it creates an amusing glance into a different world, but also because it does have something serious to say about women in Hollywood. Kudos to a filmmaker who can teach a gentle lesson so pleasantly, with such fun and good humor.
