A satirical comedy about a new writer hypnotized by a muse who promises success beyond his wildest dreams.
Evan Wyler is a hot new young writer who is snatched up by a mysterious woman, Alexa Vere de Vere, who promises him connections, wealth and supreme success. As her promises never materialize, the writer investigates Alexa’s past which holds secrets both dark and hilarious. This satire of fame, art and trendiness is an excellent introduction to the “Year of Arts and Culture.”
