It’s always interesting when a relevant and current topic is explored via film. Basing a story around a relatable subject immediately pulls in an interested audience as most want to see what how it all looks behind the scences. This movie has an interesting concept coupled with an all-star cast. On top of that, you have DiCaprio signed on as a producer, there is a lot of hype for this one to deliver on. From what I can see from the trailer, I don’t feel as if it will come up short of just that. Furman brings a unique style to his directing and is sure to set this movie apart in one way or another.
