Director: David Mamet
Run Time: 105 minutes, Certificate: ,
Satire on the movie-making business from writer and director David Mamet. The cast and crew of 'The Old Mill' are forced to move location from New Hampshire to a small town in Vermont due to the excessive demands by the locals. But they discover that a crucial location, the local mill, burnt down 40 years ago in 1960. The scriptwriter (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) is more interested in one of the local girls rather than do a last minute rewrite; the lead actress (Sarah Jessica Parker) is moaning about her nude scenes; and the lead actor (Alec Baldwin) is more interested in a local teenage fan than he is in the film. What could possibly go wrong?
