State and Main

State and Main

What could be funnier than a troubled film production where everybody involved seems to have unleashed their egos for one final brawl? Fiction, pure fiction of course. Hollywood would never allow a director (William H. Macy) to hire an untested and emotionally unstable writer (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to try to salvage a film populated with jailbait chasing leading men (Alec Baldwin) and prima donna leading ladies (Sarah Jessica Parker). A blackly humorous ensemble comedy which almost certainly downplays the madness behind the scenes
