How To Lose Friends and Alienate People

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Sidney Young is a disillusioned intellectual who both adores and despises the world of celebrity, fame and glamour. His alternative magazine, Post Modern Review, pokes fun at the media obsessed stars and bucks trends, and so when Young is offered a job at the ultra conservative New York based Sharps magazine its something of a shock!

It seems Sharps editor Clayton Harding is amused by Young's disruption of a post-BAFTA party with a pig posing as Babe. Thus begins Sidney's descent into success - his gradual move from loser to confidante of starlet Sophie Maes - and a love affair with colleague Alison Olsen, that will either make him or break him.
