Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

The quest for success in Hollywood. The dream of becoming an actress. Novella McClure is in her early thirties and has several problems. 1) She didn’t become a star. 2) Not only that, but she also didn’t get any parts in the last three years. 3) Her name sounds like a porn star from the past century. 4) There are younger actresses willing to do anything for a piece of fame. 5) She has trouble with paying the rent. And a new problem emerges amidst all this: she starts to eat herself! Is Jimmy Weber’s opera prima a less-serious In My Skin? Is it a metaphorical and satirical critique to the waste of bodies in Hollywood? Is it a gore flick? It might be all those things, plus a carefree B melodrama with grace, speed, some brutal revenge sequence, large doses of black comedy, and a memorable performance by its lead actress Meggie Maddock. Yes, you’re thinking Meggie Maddock is a slightly better name than Novella McClure. It’s true: perhaps in that sense Eat has some documentary elements. JPF
