Brandy Burre, best known for a recurring role on HBO's The Wire, retired from acting in 2006 to start a family in Beacon, New York, but by the time Robert Greene started shooting this cinema verite documentary, she'd made up her mind to attempt a comeback. The plot thickens when Burre reveals that the father of her two children is moving out because of the affair she's been having, though this aspect of the story is strictly controlled and, rather than pursue it, Greene settles for a sort of rhetorical gloss comparing her roles as a mother and domestic partner to her acting roles. At one point her agent tells her she needs a demo reel to get work in LA; watching her drop tears for the camera as her home life disintegrates, I had to wonder whether this was it.
