A big-budget movie descends upon a quaint town, sowing a bumper crop of corruption, vanity and greed. Thrown out of his original location, director Walt Price (William H. Macy) certainly has his work cut out for him as he moves the production to a new town...

The movie's star (Alec Baldwin), is a celebrity heartthrob with a predilection for under-aged girls, which canny local teenager Carla (Julia Stiles) proves quite effective at exploiting. This sends the sensitive screenwriter (Philip Seymour Hoffman), sole witness to the affair, into a moral dilemma. To make matters worse, the film's leading lady, Claire (Sarah Jessica Parker), refuses to do her contracted nude scene! Polished producer Marty Rossen (David Paymer) arrives to apply his inimitable powers of persuasion; negotiating with Claire and her agent, keeping an eye on Bob, tangling with the law, getting rewrites out of Joe. In the days that elapse before the cameras finally roll, money will change hands, careers will be jeopardised and love will bloom.


Part Hollywood satire, part screwball comedy, State and Main explores what happens when a cell phone wielding movie crew invades a quaint New England town.nnLaced with the tart dialogue characteristic of Mamet, State and Main follows screenwriter Joe White (Hoffman), whose old fashioned values are put to the test when he is the only witness to a heartthrob movie star's (Baldwin) indiscretions with a local teenage girl (Stiles).nnThe movie's smooth talking director (Macy) and aggressive producer (Paymer) pressure Joe to put aside his convictions for the sake of the film and his future writing career.nnMeanwhile, Joe falls for a local bookseller (Pidgeon), who challenges him to stand up for the truth. Rounding out the cast are Sarah Jessica Parker as a sexy Hollywood actress who tempts Joe, and Charles Durning and Patty LuPone as the town's starstruck mayor and his wife.
