Drew Barrymore plays an actress in rehab and her replacement in the comedy The Stand-In: here’s the funny trailer.
Drew Barrymore she is the absolute star of comedy The Stand-In, of which we present the trailer in the original language: in the film Drew plays Candy, a beloved comic movie star, who, however, goes through a psychologically difficult period, ending up like many celebrities (and, full of self-irony, like Drew Barrymore herself as a teenager) in rehab . Her career seems to have come to an end, but there is perhaps a way out to keep the audience from forgetting her while hopefully recovering: to be replaced by her “stand-in“(Barrymore again), a woman who dreams of having a real career as an actress. Candy will lose control of her alter-ego, however, very motivated … Lo”stand-in“is, for the uninitiated, a kind of stunt double, but not active in dangerous scenes: he takes the place of a star while the lights and shots are being prepared, or he helps the other actors if they need to rehearse the scene, waiting for the star.
The Stand-In, in limited release in US theaters in December, simultaneously with the streaming release, is directed by Jamie Babbit and written by Sam Bain, the former a veteran American television director, the latter active in the world of British sitcoms. Also in the cast is TJ Miller.
