It makes the viewer reflect by the end
10 October 2018 | by proud_ludditeSee all my reviews

Edith (Leah Goldstein) is an actress struggling to find work and build a career in Toronto . Her insecurities and jealousies of her peers lead to behaviour that is occasionally funny and always nasty.

The first half of this film is quite engaging as it is frank about the various forms of instability of anyone trying to find work in an artistic field. While one can understand Edith's feelings and motives in the beginning, it starts to wear off somewhat in the second half. She becomes very unlikeable and it's hard to follow the film's focus on someone we (the viewers) would rather avoid if we had to face her in real life.

Even during the difficult phase, Goldstein is great and always believable. This helps the viewer ride through to the conclusion that starts to take a better twist. The ending makes us all question whatever it is that we are spending our time doing (career or otherwise): are we doing it because we enjoy it or because we think it will lead to some image of "success"? This twist elevated the movie back to the good level with which it began.
