Tricky one this.... Overall, not bad. Some misdirected/poorly acted scenes between Alex and Liam but the two lead actresses did a pretty good job throughout. Too much of a lean on wide angle lens shots - and the fact that I picked up on it should show how much it was misused. Pretty sure I understood the end, but it's slightly ambiguous which is not a bad thing. It's not a GREAT film but it's not awful either. If you have an interest in films (as opposed to purely being a consumer of them) I'd say it's worth a watch. I didn't regret seeing it, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone I know either. Looks like a first feature for a lot of the creatives, and I think it was a strong showing with a lot of really nice choices. Without being derivative it reminded me a little of the Hammer House Of Horror series from the 80s and also (weirdly) the 60s Avengers TV show (Emma Peel and Steed) - in a good way. Don't be mislead by the super high scores, but don't be put off by the super low ones either.
When a talented actress fails to land the role of her dreams, she becomes obsessed with the up-and-comer who gets the part.
