A FUNNY LOOK AT PEOPLE WHO WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET FAMOUS…OR STAY FAMOUS.
Lee Simon (Kenneth Branaugh), unsuccessful journalist and wanna-be novelist, tries to get a foot into the door with celebrities. After divorcing his wife Robin (Judy Davis), Lee gets to meet a lot of rich and beautiful people, partly through journalism, partly because he has a script to offer. But life among those from out-of-this-world is hard, and his seeming success always results in defeat. Meanwhile Robin meets a very desirable TV-producer and takes the first steps in the world of celebrity herself.
DiCaprio plays Brandon Darrow, a teen heartthrob and one of the characters in Woody Allen’s portrait of fame and fortune. Darrow is spoiled and mysterious – his character is symbolic of the phenomenon of celebrity.
