"A movie about today's Hollywood -- hilarious and heartless in about equal measure, and often at the same time." - Roger Ebert

We might be a month out of "Oscar month" but we can still celebrate Tinseltown in all of its messy glory! And what better selection than this sly insider comedy from Director Robert Altman?

A Hollywood studio executive with a shaky moral compass (Tim Robbins) finds himself caught up in a criminal situation that would be right at home in one of his movie projects. He's being blackmailed by a writer whose script he rejected but which one?

Mixing elements of film noir with biting satire, The Player functions as both a stylish murder mystery and a commentary on its own production. Loaded with movie industry insider jokes, a heroic supporting cast and a lineup of star cameos that make for an astonishing Hollywood who’s who, this is a must-see for any true cinephile out there!
