In the vein of Girls, Hot Mess is a hilarious, honest and ultimately touching look at the insecurities and angst of life for twenty-somethings. Hot Mess is a fresh, brave comedy that launches - with a bang - the film careers of a group of talented young artists. Made on a shoestring it is the debut feature from writer-director Lucy Coleman. Lucy's extremely sharp, authentic and subversive screenplay is brought to life with brilliant performances from its young cast. In particular, Hot Mess introduces an exciting actress in Sarah Gaul as Loz. A hugely talented musical comedian and star in the making, Sarah has appeared at the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival, Melbourne Cabaret Festival and featured in the top ten FRESH acts at this year's Sydney Comedy Festival.
