'Starlet' explores the unlikely cross-generational friendship between 21 year-old Jane (Dree Hemingway), and the elderly Sadie (Besedka Johnson), two women whose worlds collide in California's San Fernando Valley. Jane spends her time getting high with her dysfunctional roommates while caring for her Chihuahua, Starlet. Sadie, a widow, passes her days alone, tending to her flower garden.

Check out Sean Baker's earlier work! - Starlet review by TE

Spoiler Alert

What a brilliant calling-card of a first movie! Sean Baker has gone on to make Tangerine and The Florida Project, and I can't wait to see what he does next.

All the elements are here in Starlet: a good story, excellently relaxed performances, innovative camerawork and a great soundtrack.

It's sad to note that Besedkah Johnson died just a year after her wonderful turn here as Sadie.
