A wonderful performance by Leah Goldstein turns this Toronto set tale of a struggling actress into something near sublime. Goldstein captures the soul sucking profession of actress just about perfectly with rejection coming at her from all sides. The novelty is that she is a pretty horrible person quick to sabotage those with any kind of fleeting or possible success. Yet Goldstein makes this character endearing.
