For Your Consideration
Just in time for Purim! For Your Consideration is not only the title of this 2006 comedy but it is also a phrase used in trade advertisements to promote films for honors such as the Academy Awards. The plot revolves around a group of three actors who learn that their performances in the fictional film they have not even completed yet, Home for Purim, a drama set in the mid-1940s American South, are supposedly generating a great deal of award-season buzz.
Many of the cast return from other mockumentary films; This Is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, and A Mighty Wind, including Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Parker Posey, Harry Shearer, Michael McKean, Fred Willard, Larry Miller, Bob Balaban, Jennifer Coolidge, Jane Lynch, Ed Begley Jr., Michael Hitchcock, John Michael Higgins and Jim Piddock.
Ricky Gervais, the co-creator of the British television series The Office, also appears, while John Krasinski, Richard Kind, Scott Adsit, and Sandra Oh make brief cameos. Though the dialogue is largely improvised by the actors, the format is a departure from the mockumentary style.
