Review

There isn’t an awful lot to GameFace – no one learns any life lessons and it’s not deep or thoughtful. But it’s a good, quick hit of laughter, peppered with the occasional gross-out visual gag as failed actress Marcella tries to wrangle her increasingly chaotic life.

After last week’s excruciating confrontation with the drunken and furious wife of her slimy ex, Simon, she tries to mend fences with her soulful driving instructor Jon, who witnessed the debacle. But Marcella (Roisin Conaty) perfectly embodies the sheer sticky desperation of leaving increasingly manic and wildly inappropriate voicemail messages for someone you fancy.

There’s a great scene too with her agent who clearly has no idea Marcella is a client.

Summary

Marcella deals with the fallout from her date with Jon. She meets Simon and confronts him about his wife's behaviour. Meanwhile, her life coach inspires her to go and visit her agent, Pam, to talk about her lack of work. Comedy, written by and starring Roisin Conaty.
