In 1996, aspiring director Tony Zierra began filming his four actor roommates as they struggled to make their way in Hollywood. Over the next several years, three of them would achieve a modicum of success -- Chad Lindberg in The Fast and the Furious, Brad Rowe in Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss, and, most impressively, Wes Bentley in American Beauty -- while the fourth, Greg Fawcett, never managed to land a big break and saw his acting dreams crumble. Through it all, Zierra kept his cameras rolling, capturing 10 years' worth of material and compiling it into this intimate documentary that offers an insider's look at the thin line between success and failure -- and the high cost of both -- in the Hollywood dream machine. ~ Sandra Bencic, Rovi
