Synopsis: When a member of a popular New York City improv troupe gets a huge break, the rest of the group – all best friends – start to realize that not everyone is going to make it after all.
The performances in the film are all honest and in some cases raw, and the writing really allows the struggels of the characters to shine. As the characters come to terms with one of the members of the group being cast on “Weekend Live” the remaining members of the group are forced to take a hard look at themselves and consider, or reconsider, their goals. They are well beyond the years of playing the romantic, starving artist role in NYC – whether they like it or not. Their growing contempt for the member of the group who has actually made progress is palpable, uncomfortable, and ultimately relatable.
I can’t recommend this film enough for anyone who aspires to be an actor, a writer, a filmmaker, etc. This is definitely a film you don’t want to miss.
