Mean Girls meets High School Musical when a brainy teenage girl and her pop superstar brother both become overnight sensations, in the Israeli teen dramedy ALMOST FAMOUS. Shir (Niv Sultan) is an awkward bookworm at high school, until a brush with celebrity changes everything. Suddenly, classmates all want to be her best friend, after her brother Tomer (Omer Dror) nails his audition for an American Idol-style talent show. While Shir enjoys the newfound attention, her brother risks losing his girlfriend, as the show’s producer concocts a fake romance between Tomer and his overambitious singing partner. As the competition heats up, the siblings must decide how far they’re willing to go in their pursuit of fame. This fun, music-packed and authentic look at teenagerhood exposes the modern-day realities of living in a social media world where popularity is everything.
