For Your Consideration
Filmfest 2007

Christopher Guest turns the camera on Hollywood: Three actors learn their respective performances in the film “Home for Purim”, a drama set in the mid-1940s American South, are generating award-season buzz. None of them would have imagined that this little film would have the capacity to change their lives. But when Marilyn hears of Internet rumours that her performance could garner an Oscar nomination, the buzz of awards season is set in motion. It is not long before Callie and Victor get tagged with Oscar-fever too, and the race toward nominations begins. The eccentricity of the stars of “Home for Purim” and all who surround them is delightfully baffling. From the oblivious producer, to the clueless publicist, from the poster designers to the offbeat director, from the outrageous gossip show hosts to the screenplay’s quirky writers, FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION is funny from its first line to its last.
