‘You want to be a thing? Make yourself that thing.’
1981. Hollywood. Sue Mengers, the first female ‘superagent’ at a time when women talent agents of any kind are almost unheard of, invites you into her Beverly Hills home for an evening of dish, secrets, and all the inside showbiz stories that only Sue could tell…
Back in the 1970s, Sue Mengers represented almost every major star in Hollywood; her clients were the talk of the town and her glamorous dinner parties were legendary. But by 1981 the glory days were fading. Her time was passing as a sleek and corporate New Hollywood began to emerge. The phone’s not ringing so much these days and Sue is forced to face the inevitable truth: the credits roll sooner than you think.
