I saw this at the Sydney Film Festival 2017.
This movie is the typical youth dreaming of becoming a star and then we route for him/her as they are rejected by the establishment only to rise like a phoenix. Why so they keep making them? Because we love them is why. The beauty here is the parallels with the star Danielle MacDonald.

Go - be inspired by Killer P and try stop singing P B N J days after you see the movie.
