The Art of Social War (2008)

Stacey has an upwardly mobile career working for the New York mayor. But when her fiance Jamey Makepeace is offered the opportunity to run a Hollywood studio they need to relocate to LA. The couple soon find themselves on enemy terrain as the other major players at the studio - Simon, Barb, Julia and Phil - engage in war tactics. So Stacey prepares for battle by grabbing a copy of ancient military strategist Sun Tzu's book The Art of War. Inspired by the author's own difficult transition from New York to LA, this all sounds very promising. But amid all the rivalry, espionage and social commentary about the Hollywood scene, the convoluted plot and myriad characters totally lost me. But for those who love it, a sequel (and possible movie) are in the works.
