Performers, Cast and Crew:
Los Angeles Times - 11/08/2012
"One of the year's most arresting, heartfelt indies, Sean Baker's STARLET trains the flat, harsh San Fernando Valley sun on a pair of checked-out lives testing new interpersonal waters..."
New York Times - 11/09/2012
"[A] thrillingly, unexpectedly good American movie about love and a moral awakening..."
A.V. Club - 11/08/2012
"STARLET is refreshingly unsentimental in its depiction of both youth and age....Writer-director Sean Baker affords potential caricatures time to breathe and live and grow in ways that feel both organic and earned." -- Grade: B
Entertainment Weekly - 11/30/2012
"[The film] unfolds with a matter-of-fact integrity that accepts all personal quirks, weaknesses, and sorrows as human and worthy of love." -- Grade: A-
Chicago Sun-Times - 12/04/2012
3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he film itself deserves praise for its portraits of these two women and the different worlds they inhabit."
