Ever wondered how the shinning stars on our screens looked in real life. Ever thought about how celebrities manage to keep themselves relevant in the highly competitive and cutthroat entertainment industry. Ever wondered how we got the inside gossip or dirt on some of the most renowned stars. Amazon prime’s Flack takes us on a journey that shows us the underbelly of the entertainment industry.
Being a celebrity isn’t as easy and effortless as it is made to look by some of the stars. You are constantly under public eyes who are just waiting for a minor misstep and paparazzi are always choking down your throat. No human is perfect and celebrities have their inherent vices too but maintain a clean and sacred image is of the utmost importance for most of them and that is where the PR team and Celebrity management firms come into play. Amazon Prime’s Flack shows us this world in all its glory and absurdity.
The stars who seem like gods on screen can seem like the polar opposites of it. “I Don’t care if you lie or send innocent people to jail.” is one dialogue from the trailer that really stands out as it shows us the hollowness of all this fame and camaraderie. The job description is really simple here. Do what it takes to keep the client relevant and help maintain a good image at all costs.
These Flackers try every trick in the book to get out their biggest secrets and handle everything that comes their way. It makes you think if there is any reality left in the term personalities that we see on screen.
Lydia Wilson, Rebecca Benson, Sophie Okonedo and Genevieve Angelson play the 4 main leading ladies who are all headed by Anna Paquin’s character Robyn.
Flack will be streaming on Amazon Prime on 22nd January.
