For Your Consideration


For Your Consideration
Chris Guest is back with another biting satire, this time taking a look at Hollywood, and in particular, the Oscars marketing buzz. Set on the set of ''Home for Purim,'' a diverse cast of people are involved with the movie. Production is limping along with the usual problems, when rumours start circulating that the aging leading lady will be getting an Oscar nod for her role. This news galvanises everyone involved to greater efforts for their own personal glory, as the deadline for Oscar noms draws closer.

85 minutes.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Diane de Beer quote iconIn the end, it is sadly, almost grimly, funny...
10
Die Burger
Laetitia Pople quote icon'n Kalm, ingehoue komedie oor roem binne die Hollywood-konteks, en wat dit aan 'n mens kan doen.
15
Cape Times
Carina Chocano quote iconBleak Oscar satire not as inspired as past efforts.
10
iAfrica.com
Rebekah Kendal quote iconThe attempt at satire falls horribly flat and the movie simply fizzles out where it should crackle delightfully.

The Citizen
Sabrina Dean quote iconFor Your Consideration is a clever, funny, satirical look at the movie industry machine and the blazing fever of anticipation before Oscar nominees are announced.

Alistair Fairweather quote iconThe svengali of satire, Christopher Guest, takes aim at his juiciest target yet — Hollywood. The results are as painful as they are funny.
