  • Starlet sneaks up on you. Set in the same sun-dried, strip-malled precincts of the San Fernando Valley where "Boogie Nights" took place - and set, in part, in that same porn industry milieu - Sean Baker's low-key, low-budget indie traces the relationship that develops between a young actress and an isolated, elderly woman. show more

  • A mismatched-friends drama whose overall sensitivity is belied by a couple of clumsily contrived plot points, Sean Baker's Starlet pairs story and setting perfectly. show more

  • Starlet shows enough of her unbalanced, unsustainable situation to make sense of her connection to Sadie, however frail a ballast her new friend might be. Their need for each other is disarmingly sweet, but far from sticky. show more

    Not enough dialogue. I found myself thinking geez say something. These critics suckered me into watching because they rated it highly. Please, it was the worst movie I've ever seen in my life. I want the 103 minutes of my life back. I want a refund. I rather watch grass grow.
