Dream On

A fabulous and shocking insight into the vulnerability of young people seeking '˜stardom' through reality TV shows.

There is fantastic interaction between mum Irene and daughter Sherry Marie and the naivete of the pair is very touching.

Although having a tough life, Irene has not let go of her dreams, she feels she can finally achieve stardom on the coat tails of her talentless daughter Sherry Marie. Their ultimate betrayal by Sherry's boyfriend Duane and the luscious Lavinia - "we sell humiliation" - leaves a bitter taste.

Anyone thinking of auditioning for a reality TV show should definitely see this first. You may well learn a valuable lesson.
