This is the kind of movie actors do to try and get a reputation of being progressive. None of the characters were likebale, nor had a shred of integrity. The plot is absolutely absurd for a movie that tries to root itself in "what's real"; and the acting within is even less believable. Anglea Trimbur is truly one of the worst actresses I've ever seen, it just goes to show you that it's about who you know, more than talent. I wanted to shave her eyebrows, they're so absurd and overdone. There was no redeeming quality to this movie beyond Constance Wu being nice to look at.
