Hollywood insider Mimi Hare and seasoned writer Clare Naylor have teamed up to create a wickedly funny look at an appearance-obsessed, name-dropping, ego-driven industry from the eyes of naïve outsider Elizabeth Miller. Ali Marsh Weller does an excellent job portraying the clueless heroine as she navigates her way through the maze of personalities and mores of her adopted city. Thanks to Weller's skillful reading, Elizabeth comes across as incredulous but savvy, and other characters, though quirky, become likable and believable. Matching the mood set by Weller, chapters are divided by hip, upbeat music. Production elements, fine and entertaining writing, and gifted narration come together for a wonderful escape package.
