Storyline

Audrey Brodsky quits her dreary desk job to follow her childhood dream of becoming an actress. When she meets an aspiring cameraman on the internet and moves in with a sexy new roommate, the adventure of her life finally begins. Insider jokes about living in Los Angeles bring forth social commentary about the importance we place on celebrity. But below the jokes lie a bittersweet story that is both inspiring and realistic. We are reminded that happiness has little to do with fame, and that we long to be connected; connected to ourselves, each other and the world. Winner of 20 festival awards, this quirky, Wes Anderson inspired large-scale, micro-budget comedy boasts over 30 locations, 80 music cues including a mandolin score, and a cast of more than 50 speaking roles, the majority of whom are women. The Hollywood Times declares "You will fall in love with the characters and laugh to the end. Written by Publicity Services

Watchable Hollywood Wannabe Movie
15 July 2018 | by calorneSee all my reviews

A well-worn theme given a little narrative twist. It is well filmed, but the characters are rather one dimensional. I think that was intentional, giving a cartoon feel to the story throughout. But it was hard to take the characters seriously at all and so hard to care about what happened to them. I think it is derivative of Amelie, but not in the same league.

There was a comical play within the film that we had glimpses of and that looked quite entertaining. I think I would have enjoyed that as the main feature more than the film.
