    more of an important stage ...

    Could anybody tell me if the sentence is OK?

    You have played in many movies. But this film is more of an important stage in your carrier ladder, isnít it?



    Thank you

    Re: more of an important stage ...

    It's more natural to say 'You have acted in many movies' or 'You have had parts in many movies'.

    It's 'career' — not 'carrier' and ladders have rungs — not stages.

    I'd say

    'You've been in a lot of movies, but this film is a more important rung on your career ladder, isn't it?'
