Director Christopher Guest reunites his star-packed team from 'A Mighty Wind', 'Best in Show' and 'Waiting for Guffman' for this hilarious, keen-edged comedy set in a town where "Oscar® is the backbone of an industry not known for having a backbone." In 'For Your Consideration', buzz of a potential Oscar® nomination sends the cast and crew of the low-budget indie film 'Home for Purim' into a wide-eyed frenzy. Catherine O'Hara, Harry Shearer and Parker Posey play 'Purim''s lead actors who ride the wave of buzz with odd and oddly touching results. Eugene Levy, Jennifer Coolidge, John Michael Higgins, Jane Lynch, Michael McKean, Bob Balaban and Fred Willard round out the cast of Hollywood types more than happy to exploit, bask in and leverage the Oscar® hype.
