Storyline

Kate Loughlin is a vivacious young actress struggling to get her big break in the London film industry. When she lands an audition for the lead role in a massive movie franchise based on the 'Prince of Chaos' novels by legendary author Horatio King, she goes after the opportunity with all guns blazing. However a sleazy agent trying to pimp her to the director Vincent Catalano, pushes her to the other extreme. Determined to prove her strict professionalism, she starts second guessing Vincent's interest in her. Dáithí Carroll is an earnest young filmmaker studying in London. Chosen to direct one of his college's graduation films, he needs a crew. Enter Joanne Webber, a hard-nosed Londoner with a penchant for role-play and her eye on this vulnerable Irishman. Together they recruit a motley crew for their film, and Dáithí enlists Kate to star. A restless Vincent inserts himself onto their set through his friend and casting director Deborah Whitton, who is tutor to the young filmmakers. ... Written by Film Venture London

A Rom Com set in London about about a gorgeous young Irish Actress's trials and tribulations
5 September 2015 | by lccanavanSee all my reviews

Graham Cantwell is one of my favourite film makers and I loved his first feature, Anton. Kudos to this Irish Director for very successfully jumping to the entirely different genre of Rom Com with a bang. Amy Joyce-Hastings, as the lead, is very lovable but out of luck when it comes to getting cast; she is no doubt like many young actors in London - struggling to get by while waiting for the next job! The film has an array of brilliant characters and I found myself rooting for all of them. Kate transcends the world of the big budget fantasy franchise, a short student film (which proves a raucous experience!) and some other mad work for survival. The Irish living in England theme is the underbelly of the film and is brilliantly and comically done. Ger Ryan is outstandingly hilarious and true to life as the young Granny to the director of the student short. The film is experiential when it comes to showcasing London. It is aesthetically stunning and full of light and sunshine which makes everything and everyone in it look ethereal! Go see this film or get it on VOD for anyone in the mood for a great Rom Com, an insight into the mad world of casting and film and a homage to London.
