Summary

A brilliant, fast-paced comedy about life behind the scenes in the film business and how to survive when your greatest fantasy comes true and threatens to wreck your perfectly ordinary life.

After the movie, when the credits roll up, you might see his name flash past - Joseph West - and think nothing of it. Not an actor, not a director, Joe is just one of the money men, kept at arms distance from the talent. Until one night in New York the talent comes calling.

Olivia Finch is lit from within, an actress who was born to it but can't stand the superficiality anymore. Now all she wants is a real conversation with an ordinary guy - and Olivia Finch always gets what she wants. Cue Joe, married, ordinary accountant Joe.

And then cue a snowball of deception, acting and confusion that puts Joe in the limelight, his marriage in trouble and a dead body on the ground in this hilarious caper.
