Sometimes success & failure look identical.
Struggling actress Polly finds the path to success just got rockier when her identical twin sister Amy lands a plum role in a popular soap. Getting constantly mistaken for her twin is irksome enough. But as Amy’s career skyrockets – a leading part in an HBO series, getting romantically linked with Jared Leto – the situation becomes even more galling.
Amid the laughs, sharp and funny low-budget Australian comedy That’s Not Me wraps some shrewd observations about self-esteem and unrealistic expectations. And the insights here pertain as much to anxious millennials as insecure actors. Co-writer Alice Foulcher’s fabulous turn as the neurotic protagonist tops things off perfectly.
