What is it like to be a veteran director up against the machinations of modern-day Hollywood, with its self-absorbed stars, studio executives who think 'Singapore' is a made-up country, destitute producers posing as lords of finance - the mad, the bad and the downright notorious? Award-winning filmmaker Bruce Beresford takes us through the highs and lows of the screen trade, from high-powered dinner tables to obscure backlots, from the centres of power to farflung locations, with a cast of characters that includes Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Jeffrey Archer, Steven Seagal, and many others. Delightfully literate and sharply observed, this is a highly entertaining insider's account of a rarely glimpsed world.
