Ratings from other sources

IMDB 6.7/10

An aging, out-of-work actress accepts one last job, though the consequences of her decision affect her in ways she didn't consider..

My ratings 7.0/10

My impressions:

What a wonderful idea. To be able to escape reality but how much do we want to immerse ourselves in that world. Reality is not always pleasant but despite its shortcomings, there is the assurance that what we encounter is for all intents and purposes the real situation. A hard choice when love comes into the equation. Or a simple decision with no guarantees of its consequences.

An engaging story.
