“A San Fernando ingenue and an octogenarian widow make a startling connection in Sean Baker's indie feature Starlet. Newcomer Dree Hemingway delivers a star-making turn as Jane, a lost soul who stumbles upon an accidental windfall at a yard sale in the Valley. What happens next is the unlikely stalking of a reclusive widow (powerfully played by Besedka Johnson), a series of unexpected turns, and a cinematic tale that evokes the glorious spirit of Harold and Maude. Like its wide-eyed heroine, Starlet wanders blissfully into Southern California curveballs - and delivers an intense study on ethics, riches and connection.”
