Storyline

Plot Summary

Rosanna Arquette informally interviews several contrasting actresses about how they cope with being a woman in the entertainment industry. The chauvenism of male crew is discussed, the pretentiousness / stereotyping of female characters in American film now. Interviews include those with Alley Sheedy, Martha Plimpton, Debra Winger, Emmanual Beart, and Rosanna's sister, Patricia Arquette -among others. Although a documentary this film seems affected, Arquette never has an argument, never says anything bad about another actress, in fact, complimenting just about everyone of them as being her favourite actress.

Quotes Ally Sheedy: Or even if you have to walk in, in a tight fitting shirt and look sexy. You know what I mean? It's like that's what you're about in that scene, that stays with you for the whole day and it goes on and on and on. And then people say 'why are there so many 13 year olds that are bulimic?' Hello.
