A masterful veteran actor (Jack Lemmon) shares a dressing room with a rising star (Matthew Broderick), whom he attempts to teach the tricks of the trade. What begins as a warm rapport between mentor and apprentice gradually devolves into a tense mire of rivalry and ego, leading to some poignant and hilarious moments. David Mamet adapted his 1977 two-character off-Broadway success for this made-for-cable production. 78 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
