Entertainment Reviews:

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."

Product Description:

A free-spirited 21-year-old woman strikes up an unlikely friendship with an elderly widow in this drama from writer/director Sean Baker (TAKE OUT, PRINCE OF BROADWAY). Young Jane (Dree Hemingway) has a fondness for cannabis, and a Chihuahua named Starlet that never leaves her side. One day, she happens across a garage sale at the home of lonely octogenarian Sadie (Besedka Johnson), and clashes with the aging widow while attempting to make a purchase. Later, upon investigating the item, Jane discovers that it contains a secret cache of money. Determined to help the acerbic Sadie solve the mystery of the hidden cash, Jane reaches out to Sadie, and finds the secrets of her past slowly bubbling to the surface as a warm bond grows between them.
