THAT’S NOT ME (2017)

You’re not unique. But you’re not alone.

Polly’s dreams of making it as an actor are shattered when her identical twin sister Amy lands the lead role in an HBO show opposite Jared Leto*. Mistaken for her famous sister at every turn, Polly decides to use her sister’s celebrity for her own advantage – free clothes, free booze, casual sex… with hilarious and disastrous consequences for them both.

Raw and refreshing in its humour, THAT’S NOT ME is a feel-good comedy about the difference between failure and disappointment. We can’t all be Oscar winners. Not everyone will make it. But is that such a bad thing?

THAT’S NOT ME is the debut feature from writer/director Gregory Erdstein and actor/writer Alice Foulcher. Married since 2013, the pair met while studying in 2008 at the acclaimed Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) School of Film and Television in Melbourne, Australia.

They have collaborated on several short films including the TROPFEST (2014) finalist short A BIT RICH, and the critically acclaimed PICKING UP AT AUSCHWITZ.

THAT’S NOT ME was written during an eight-month writing residency in Paris at the prestigious Cité des Art Internationale.

*Jared Leto is in no way involved in this production.
