A tongue-in-cheek look at film production, State and Main often exemplifies the themes of its film within film a film while also being a compelling look at smalltown America. Philip Seymour Hoffman steals the show in this ensemble castA tongue-in-cheek look at film production, State and Main often exemplifies the themes of its film within film a film while also being a compelling look at smalltown America. Philip Seymour Hoffman steals the show in this ensemble cast repeatedly and whenever he is on the screen, the scene is guaranteed to be better. Rebecca Pidgeon, William H. Macy, Sarah Jessica Parker, Alec Baldwin, David Paymer, Clark Gregg, and Julia Stiles, are all very good here as well and roundout this truly marvelous ensemble cast. Incredibly witty, subtle, and smart, State and Main is an interesting behind the scenes look at the making of a Hollywood film that manages to make you laugh, smile, and be thoroughly entertained throughout. As with all David Mamet films, there is a huge emphasis placed on this cast of characters and it often feels as if it was staged as a play, which I love. Overall, State and Main is right up my alley.
