When a big-budget Hollywood movie crew arrives in a quaint Vermont village--sowing a bumper crop of corruption, vanity and greed--money will change hands, careers will be jeopardized and love will bloom before the first cameras roll. A producer losing money by the day ... a first-time screenwriter trying vainly to maintain his integrity ... a leading lady who does not want to appear nude ... a star with a dangerous predilection for underage girls--in a town full of underage girls. But events spin out of control when the truth is revealed about an accident at the corner of State and Main.

Common Sense Says
Intriguing characters, good movie for older teens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that one character is attracted to underage girls and has sex with a girl who, despite clear indications that she approached him, is too young to legally consent to sex. There are other sexual references, including a character who takes off all her clothes as a way to seduce another character and a discussion about whether Claire will do a nude scene, as provided in her contract. Characters drink and smoke and use strong language. Many make moral compromises that parents will want to discuss with teens who see the movie.
