A film by W.D. Stevens.
I enjoyed the concept of the storyline very much – a love triangle between a play director, the actor and the actor’s character. The director falls for the character, but not the actor, and has to think up a clever way to get out of it.
It almost reminds me of Stranger Than Fiction in a way – how someone can be so close to a person when they are a distant idea, only to become discouraged by their flaws and complexities in real life. It’s the difference between the idea of a person, and reality – like meeting a celebrity, I guess.
The acting was pretty good, particularly by Melbourne actress Lore Burns.
I think the story had a great loop, making a parallel of the beginning and ending. It’s well written, incorporating the intimacy of the play within the movie, with the storyline of the film.
I think it would work on a deeper level if the story was layered and extended, as just when you start to figure out the characters, the film comes to a conclusion.
Pretty good over all though. I can see they’ve done well with the resources they had.
