LIFE IN THE MOVIE BUSINESS IS LIKE THE BEGINNING OF A LOVE AFFAIR ...
Everyone gets f--ked.
Hollywood mid-level producers Bobby Gould and Charlie Fox engage in a verbal boxing match centred on the eternal debate of art versus money.
Should Gould recommend to his boss another bad action would-be blockbuster? Or should he put himself on the line for a film adaptation of a spiritual, uplifting and apocalyptic novel?
When Karen, an office temp reads the novel in order to report on it to Bobby, she gives a glowing review and Gould becomes deeply affected by her and her analysis.
Causing a 3-way conflict that questions their lives, loyalty and Integrity.
David Mamet's scathing black comedy about the silver-screen industry, is packed with juicy, profane, eminently quotable, laugh-inducing zingers.
