Synopsis

Aspiring actor Polly (Alice Foulcher) dreams of being Hollywood’s next big thing – but she doesn’t quite have the drive and chutzpah to put that plan in motion. Hawking choc tops and sweeping up in cinema’s is pretty close to being an actor, right?

Her identical twin sister Amy (also Alice Foulcher, and also an actor) knows a big break when she sees one. When Polly turns down a role in an Aussie soap opera, Amy jumps at the chance – and soon she’s launched a career and landed the lead role in huge HBO television show, opposite Jared Leto.

Polly is devastated at missing out – until she starts being mistaken for her famous sister. Suddenly, everything’s on the table for her: free clothes, free booze, casual sex, all the trappings of fame. All she has to do is tell a few little lies. Fresh and breezy, this homemade feelgood comedy of sisterly rivalry is all about navigating the shallowness of celebrity to find a meaningful place in the world. We can’t all be Oscar winners. Not everyone will make it. But is that such a bad thing?

Shot in Los Angeles and Melbourne on a shoestring budget of $60,000, this debut feature from newly-minted filmmaking duo Foulcher and husband Gregory Erdstein has been generating serious buzz on the festival circuit from Sydney to Santa Barbara.
