Full Frontal is a 2002 American comedy-drama film directed by Steven Soderbergh. The film is shot on a low budget and uses a handheld digital video camera to capture the actors' performances. The movie features an ensemble cast that includes Julia Roberts, David Duchovny, David Hyde Pierce, Catherine Keener, and Blair Underwood. The story revolves around the lives of several characters in Hollywood, struggling to find meaning in their careers and relationships. Julia Roberts stars as Francesca, a successful actress who is struggling to find fulfillment in her personal life. She is married to a writer named Calvin (David Hyde Pierce), who is the polar opposite of her in terms of personality. They are celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary, but Francesca is unsure about the future of their relationship. David Duchovny plays Lee, a successful producer who is dealing with a midlife crisis. He is having an affair with a young actress named Catherine (played by Mary McCormack) but is still in love with his ex-wife (played by Julianne Moore). Blair Underwood plays Nicholas, a wealthy businessman who is looking to start a new career in Hollywood. He hires an aspiring writer named Gus (played by David Alan Basche) to write his screenplay, but the two end up developing a complicated relationship. The film is structured as a series of interconnected stories, which culminate in a production of a play called "Rendezvous." The play is written by Wilson (played by Nicky Katt), who is struggling with writer's block and trying to find inspiration for his work. Full Frontal is a unique film that blurs the lines between reality and fiction. The movie is shot in a raw, documentary style, which gives it a sense of immediacy and authenticity. The film explores the themes of love, relationships, and the struggles of creative people trying to find their place in the world. Overall, Full Frontal is a fascinating and thought-provoking film that is worth watching. The movie's unconventional structure and low-budget aesthetic may not appeal to everyone, but those who appreciate experimental films will find much to admire here. The performances by the ensemble cast are particularly impressive, and the storylines are engaging and emotionally resonant.
