Plush follows a young star following the death of her brother. I have no idea whether it presents an accurate picture of the rock star lifestyle though it seemed authentic enough for me to swallow.
Browning does a passable impression of a rock star and the concert scenes are pretty good. The support cast are less impressive, I wasn't convinced by Xavier Samuel as the guitarist Enzo.
This is a film about obsession but it takes far too long for the plot to kick in and even when it does for me the characters are too selfish and self absorbed to care too much about. Unfortunately any originality the film may have had disintegrates as it turns into a formulaic thriller the likes of which we have seen way too many times before.
Although Plush is far from a total write off apart from a nice performance from Emily Browning there isn't too much to recommend it.
