A talented, but struggling actor is willing to go to any length to get a job - including "break a leg"... especially those of other actors.

Storyline

When Max's performance is no competition for producers' nephews and bigger "names," his only option is to cripple the competition - literally. But as the roles get bigger, the competition gets stronger, the stakes get higher, and now with an undercover thespian cop on his trail, Max must struggle with his ongoing road to success and the choices he's made. Written by Sean Callahan

terrific
7 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Easily the best feature I saw at the Phoenix Film Festival, it deserved the best film award it received. The story is original. The writing is clever, funny and dark, and has a ring of veracity thanks to the writers' experience in the industry. The story structure is right on, with a satisfying climax. The acting was mostly terrific, especially Jennifer Beals -- I've never witnessed a better performance from her. John Cassini is right on the money, and the always great Molly Parker is great yet again. It's very well cast. My only complaint is that the psychedelic Shakespeare scene went on for far too long. Thanks for brightening an otherwise dreary Phoenix Film Festival.
