Five winsome African-American women pursue Hollywood acting careers in this 89-minute documentary by Daniel Yost (cowriter of Drugstore Cowboy). With their mix of effusion, narcissism, and cynicism they don?t seem much different from white starlets, and while none of them seems daunted by the industry's racial stereotypes or perceived bias against “ethnic” actors, their willingness to conform is a sad commentary. Yost captures the LA scene with the jaundiced eye of a veteran, and though it's unclear whether any of the women has the talent or charisma to claw her way to the top, Tangi Miller subsequently landed a part on the TV series Felicity, which for a Hollywood newcomer is worth bragging about.
