Stand-In

Atterbury Dodd is a stuffy New York banker, sent to Hollywood from Wall Street to straighten out the tangled finances of Colossal Studios. Crossing paths with a peppy former child star, he learns that people’s lives don’t always fit between the lines on a spread sheet. Usually behind the screen exposés deal with the creative part of movie making. “Stand-In” is one of the few films that confront the economics of Hollywood. Atterbury Dodd is the Nate Silver of Tinsel Town accounting, touching on a topic Hollywood was loathe to discuss, the union troubles roiling the back lots. This film is one of a pair that features a trained seal.
