pretty good little canadian film about the film industry. it’s about a 12 year old prima donna who is the star of a new film. he’s a pain in everyone’s ass, but a limo driver (played by the director) who is sleeping with the kid’s mom (jennifer jason leigh) helps set him straight. the kid runs away in an elaborate plot (planned by leigh) to renegotiate his contract. twisted plot aside, the fun of the film is in the sarcastic look at the film industry. the kid’s performance is quite good – he’s equal parts sardonic, caustic and vulnerable. it’s a fun little sleeper of a film. well-written, directed well enough and has a couple solid performances.
