This is a solid documentary with a nice sense of humor. The subject of child actors is a tense issue. Some see the parents as monster forcing their kids to live out their own fantasy of fame and fortune while other see it as the biggest sacrifice a parent can make in a gamble to fulfill their child's dream. We get to see a little of both in this film as well as some of the ugly aspects of the Hollywood system.
This is one of those documentaries that you laugh at, but also makes you sad or cringe the rest of the time. There was one mother/daughter combo that was particularly tragic and sad - they were completely out of touch with reality.
I really really LOVED Shanna. Idk how she didn't make any call backs. She is so sweet and beautiful. My heart just went out to her and her mother... Good luck guys I hope to see her face in the future if that's her dream I pray it comes true for her.
