Color Me Olsen

World Premiere

USA | 19 MINUTES | English |


Bright-eyed 18-year-old identical twins Taylor and Hanson come to Hollywood with the age-old dream of becoming movie stars. When they see actors playing the roles of celluloid icons Superman, Dorothy and Pirate Johnny in front of Mann's Chinese theater, they realize this could be their way in to the business, and decide to join the troupe in the roles of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. But after a taste of public attention, things start to spiral out of control in this cautionary tale about the desperate need to be "somebody".


Directed by Darren Stein

DARREN STEIN started using his father's video camera at age ten. Upon graduating NYU film school, Stein's first feature, Sparkler, premiered at the Hamptons Film Festival.
