Synopsis

Edith Welland (Leah Goldstein) dreams of being a successful actress but just can’t seem to make things happen. Things get worse when the ex-boyfriend she broke up with to focus on her career takes up acting on a whim and immediately books a leading role. When Edith can’t figure out       what she’s doing wrong, she begins to do everything wrong. DIAMOND TONGUES is a dramatic comedy about insecurity, uncertainty, unhealthy competition, and just about everything else between the lines.

Press

"A modern day All About Eve."
- Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

"Sharp and thoughtful. An exercise in cringe comedy."
-Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto 

"Refreshing because it isn’t an indictment of a demographic, or even of Edith, but is a portrait of a young woman who’s ambition has curdled into something more nasty along the way."
-Kevin Jagernauth, Indiewire

"Suggests All About Eve by way of The King of Comedy: contempt and envy reign and the threat of disaster closely follows."
- Calum Marsh, The Globe and the Mail
 
"Goldstein creates an iconic character consumed with envy in a way that’s both extreme and relatable"
- Paul Sbrizzi, Hammer to Nail

"It’s amazing how well the neophyte Goldstein captures a character whose envy, craftiness and ambition make her both unlikeable yet totally believable"
- Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star

"Diamond Tongues lives in its careful attention to detail, the meticulous but breezy way it captures Edith’s meandering life as much as her increasingly destructive disenchantment. "
David BerryNational Post

"That the directors and Goldstein manage to make the narcissistic and self-defeating Edith somehow relatable — and at times even likeable — is a truly remarkable accomplishment, especially considering her deplorable and duplicitous actions."
-Kevin Scott, Exclaim!
