“The Perfect Part” is a film about Elizabeth, an actress, going to see her agent, Arnie, regarding a stack of film scripts he has sent her. Arnie has just learned that Elizabeth is the only client he has left so he is desperate to get her to accept one of his scripts. Elizabeth proceeds to methodically reject each script while humorously highlighting clichés from several major film genres. This film takes place in current time but the characters and setting have a classic Old Hollywood vibe.

Character breakdown / Project needs
[Elizabeth] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 22 to 30]
Elizabeth is a young actress who pictures herself on the same level as the legendary starlets from Hollywood’s Golden Age. Elizabeth believes she is established, but in reality, she has only had a few bit parts in quickly forgotten low budget films. She sees herself as sophisticated and has tried hard to hide her poor New Jersey upbringing that sometimes comes out, but only when she gets very angry. Elizabeth goes out of her way to always style her hair and makeup and dress in glamorous vintage Old Hollywood style, such as her idol, Marilyn Monroe. She believes Arnie’s skills as an agent are beneath her level of talent, but since she has had little success, she feels she has to give him one more shot.
[Arnie] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 45-65]
Arnie is a Hollywood agent whose career has consisted of producing a seemingly endless series of box office bombs. Despite this, he never loses hope that his next film will be “The One”. He is not a bad man, but incompetence and failure have made him desperate. Since Elizabeth has become his only remaining client, he must use all of his (weak) powers of persuasion to get her to agree to do at least one of the scripts he has sent her. Similar to Elizabeth, Arnie also dresses in vintage clothing, wearing an old 20s era suit, but his reasons for this are not intentional, stemming instead from an inability to adapt with the times.
