Hollywood send-up. No-name actors are making a low-budget period drama called "Home for Purim," when an anonymous post on the Internet suggests that one performance is Oscar-worthy. Then, two more cast members get Oscar-related press: buzz in "Variety" and appearances on TV prompt the studio executives to insist on changes in the script in anticipation of a blockbuster. Jump ahead a few months to the days before Oscar nominees are announced: just the possibility of a nomination has changed the actors' lives. Agents, publicists, make-up artists, local celebrity reporters, and other bit players round out the backstage ensemble. Hooray for Hollywood!Written by
Worst Ending Ever! (No, This doesn't tell you how it ends!)
I am a big Guest fan and saw the movie... blah blah blah. There isn't much I can say that wasn't already said... good and bad.
I will say this though... I HATED the proverbial Guest follow-up ending. The follow-up I wanted to see, they didn't show.
I went with a couple other HUGE Guest fans and all of us sat there in the theatre while the credits rolled and said "That's it!" I think that was the nail in the coffin for me. I was up in the air about it, but the ending left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
I will see it again, though, before being completely angry about it and writing the movie off.
