Edith Welland (Leah Goldstein), the hero of Brian Robertson and Pavan Moondi's new film Diamond Tongues, has aspirations of Hollywood superstardom.

Only one flaw stands to thwart her: She isn't very good.

Goldstein, though, is excellent in the role, rendering Edith's monstrous ambition with relatable (and frequently terrifying) conviction.

At bars and parties, Edith mingles with more successful peers as jealousy begins to manifest itself, sociopathically, as sabotage.

The result suggests All About Eve by way of The King of Comedy: contempt and envy reign and the threat of disaster closely follows.
