Me and Orson Welles
portrays a caricature of the man who voiced The Shadow, realized the larger-than-life story of Citizen Kane
and who convinced a nation it was being invaded by aliens. Fueled by a strong, uproariously funny and memorable performance by Christian McKay as the eccentric Orson Welles, the film shines with bright colors and smiles and laughter. The plot rests on the opening of the Mercury Theatre and its debut production of Julius Caesar,
and all the mishaps and shenanigans that took place in order to put it together. A decent supporting cast (including Zac Efron and Claire Danes as two love-struck hopefuls) catches smiles every now and then, but they're all overshadowed by Welles himself. Perhaps the film should've been called Orson Welles et. al.
