I Am Syd Stone was ultimately satisfying, even if to begin with it felt unoriginal. It is well shot, well produced and well acted. It cannot be faulted for that. Where it shines is in the final few moments where things fall into place and a little bit of social commentary arises; namely that Hollywood doesn’t change at the same pace as society.
