Not Your Time

 

Year: 2011
Country: USA
Run Time: 25 minutes

Sid's dream was seductive. Chorus lines of sizzling, dancing girls. Lights. Smoke. Cleavage. Ever since he was a little boy, Sid has wanted to make musicals. After a lifetime of schooling, unsupportive parents, and countless brushes with success, Sid finds himself stuck in a cramped editing room, cutting swear words from movies sold to airlines and television stations. His latest hope – a musical he has pitched to a major producer. The phone rings. He holds his breath, lifts the receiver and… When his latest disappointment proves to be too much, he take matters into his own hands. Jason Alexander brings a unique determination and unpredictability to the role. A rare portrayal of the inner workings of Hollywood, Not Your Time explores the emotional depths of those working behind the scenes and how one man will stop at nothing to pursue his ultimate dream.
