I never write reviews, but this movie deserves one. It shows the harsh reality of what it's like living with the dream of being a professional actress while still showing that the struggle is worth it. Each character struggles in their own way. Jen struggles with choosing between her dream or love, Sandy struggles with whether this is the right path for her and if she's good enough, and Hannah struggles with proving she's more than her stereotypical typecast. You find a way to relate to each character and their struggles and root for them. Though it shows how hard and sometimes sad the life of a struggling actress is it also shows that there's a reason for it and that if you truly want your dream to come a reality that the struggle is worth it.
