Storyline

Mona has always dreamed of becoming an actress. She went to drama school and her family have always thought of her as a born actress. But as she begins her career, she is overshadowed by her little sister Sam, who is spotted in a random casting before becoming a star. Helpless and penniless, Mona knocks on Sam's door to find refuge, and some support. Gradually, Mona becomes a great assistant to Sam, both when filming and at home. But the situation changes dramatically when shooting commences on a film that's likely to turn Sam into a big star. Under the auspices of Pygmalion-esque Paul Borsek, Sam may well find the role of her life. The unhealthy relationship linking the two sisters to the director will tip the fragile balance between them, and push Sam into the ultimate corner.

An unspoken plagiarism
10 April 2018 | by demone-01827See all my reviews

Although the initial synopsis sounded intresting on a psychological level, the movie very quickly showed lack of character depth and back-up stories as well as stereotypes : the two main sister characters are just very caricatural in their exhuberant&successful VS introvert&envious dynamic. There are huge narrative ellipses that make it quite hard to give credit to the development of the storyline. And last but not least, this movie borrows a great deal from "Always Shine", a 2016 movie directed by Sophia Takal and starring Caitlin Fitzgerald. So it definitely feels like a "deja vu".
