Plot Summary

A mockumentary on show biz wannabes that's a must-see for anyone who has ever answered a casting call, read a screenplay in development, took voice, dance and drama lessons, waited on tables, considered plastic surgery, got excited when their agent called, or spent time rehearsing their Academy Award speech. Griffin Dunne directed and Mira Sorvino produced this hilarious story of two would-be stars, played by Laura Kirk and Nat DeWolf (who also wrote the movie).

    The cottage industry of the mockumentary has produced another pleasing trifle, the cute and smart Lisa Picard Is Famous. show more
