In this X-rated tale of dashed dreams in 1930s Hollywood, faded wunderkind director Richard Dreyfuss makes stag films in his mansion with fallen star Veronica Cartwright and aspiring actor Stephen Davies (a core Byrum collaborator); a set visit from producer Bob Hoskins with arm candy Jessica Harper stirs the pot. The first feature for writer/director Byrum and for the risk-taking UK producing team of Davina Belling and Clive Parsons has long had both defenders and detractors.
