A struggling agent for child actors and former child star himself, Howard Holloway spends years losing his most talented clients to his slick, arch-nemesis Aldo Shocklee. Until the day that Howard encounters the brilliant and unsigned 13 year-old Lydia who is on the brink of securing the lead in a new Twilight-style franchise. Howard tries desperately to close the deal of a lifetime and make his precocious young client a star while managing her drunk, volatile father, Aldo’s relentless poaching attempts, and the hostile machinations of the project’s casting director and mega producer, who both despise him. But the closer he gets to achieving the Hollywood score he has chased all his life, the more complications appear.
User Reviews: A black comedy about a Hollywood Agent, superbly portrayed and directed by Clark Gregg.
He was definitely "swimming with sharks" here.
The film not only portrays the industry in a not always flattering light, but shows the obstacles that can be thrown in the way of doing the "right" thing.
Some great character development, but here, as in Hollywood, who would you/should you trust?
A standout performance by Saxon Sharbino, as part of a very talented cast.
Definitely a film to see.
