In keeping with his earlier works, Egoyan's Speaking Parts, though grounded in reality, could never be confused with the facts of life. Arsinee Khanjian plays a near-somnambulistic maid (Lisa) who carries a torch for aspiring actor Lance (Michael McManus). She obsesses on Lance by renting tapes of the films in which he's appeared as a non-speaking extra. As Lance ignores Lisa while wooing would-be filmmaker Clara (Gabrielle Rose), Lisa develops a sort of rapport with video store manager Eddy (Tony Nardi), who also harbors dreams of becoming a filmmaker.
