Synopsis:
Offering a fascinating insight into the workings of a 1920s London film studio, and boasting a boldly expressionist shooting style, dramatic lighting and great performances from its leads (Annette Benson, Brian Aherne and Donald Calthrop), 'Shooting Stars' is at once a sophisticated morality tale and an affectionate critique of the film industry, teasing its audience with revelations about how the fantastic world of the photoplay conceals irony and hidden truths.
