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

It's Oscar month so of course we need to 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!
