A big-budget movie crew descends upon the sleepy town of Waterford, Vermont. Soon money will change hands, careers will be jeopardized and love will bloom.
Pity the poor film director (William H. Macy, Fargo) who's arrived only to discover that the local mill - a crucial location for his movie, since it's titled 'The Old Mill' - burned down in 1960. The idealistic screenwriter (Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Talented Mr. Ripley) would rather pursue a pure-hearted local girl (Rebecca Pidgeon) than do a last-minute rewrite; the bimbo starlet (Sarah Jessica Parker, Sex in the City) is now baulking at her contractual nude scene; a local teenager (Julia Stiles, Save the Last Dance) is only too willing to exploit the indiscretions of the film's skirt chasing star (Alec Baldwin, Pearl Harbor), and of course, the power-wielding producer (David Paymer, Amistad) is panicking about everything. David Mamet's hilarious State and Main will have you laughing as you watch this part screwball comedy, part showbiz satire.
