Polly’s acting career is floundering, and is overshadowed by her identical twin sister Amy who has just been cast to star in an HBO television series alongside Jared Leto. That’s Not Me follows Polly in her eccentric and humorous attempts at making her dreams come true as she struggles to come to terms with her sister’s success and her own failures.
Leaving her dead-beat roommates and unsupportive parents, Polly flies from her native Australia to Los Angeles seeking her fame and fortune, but is left disillusioned by what she finds across the sea. Once she realises that she can capitalise off her now-famous sister’s success, she impersonates her for an evening with disastrous consequences that leave her more confused than before.
The feature debut for writer/ actor Alice Foulcher, That’s Not Me offers plenty of laughs in its witty pastiche of the showbiz industry, but is ultimately anchored by a contemplative sensibility as Polly begins a journey of self-identification and acceptance. The film’s combination of wry humour and subtle dramatic resonance is as authentic as it is entertaining, and suggests that Foulcher may be a star in the making.
