Plot Summary

SEDUCED AND ABANDONED combines acting legend Alec Baldwin with director James Toback as they lead us on a troublesome and often hilarious journey of raising financing for their next feature film. Moving from director to financier to star actor, the two players provide us with a unique look behind the curtain at the world's biggest and most glamourous film festival, shining a light on the bitter-sweet relationship filmmakers have with Cannes and the film business. Featuring insights from directors Martin Scorsese, 'Bernando Bertolucci' and Roman Polanski; actors Ryan Gosling and Jessica Chastain and a host of film distribution luminaries. Written by Anonymous

Quotes Alec Baldwin: The movie business is the worst lover you've ever had in terms of, you go back again and again and again. And you go back seeking to recreate this experience you want to have. You go back with another chance to do something that you want to do, in movie-making and movie-going. You are seduced and abandoned, over and over and over again."
