Synopsis: “A hopeful young starlet uncovers the ominous origins of the Hollywood elite and enters into a deadly agreement in exchange for fame and fortune.” (source)
Watching the ups and downs of an aspiring actress isn’t something I usually care too much about. But the gorgeous poster and its teasing tagline intrigued me, so I gave it a go, and I was blown away. Alex Essoe made Sarah impossible to forget. I was embarrassed, scared, envious, uncomfortable — all on Sarah’s behalf. Her insecurity and vulnerability were rivaled only by her ambition. Her internal transformation was frightening; the external metamorphosis was truly horrific.
