News & Interviews for Grown Up Movie Star
Critic Reviews for Grown Up Movie Star
Grown Up Movie Star is an awkward mixture of an emotionally intimate coming-of-age story and contrived serio-comic plotting.
It isn't a polished effort, but Maggs delivers a watchable movie thanks to snappy dialogue (also provided by Maggs) and outstanding work from a cast plucked mostly from The Rock.
Grown Up Movie Star is unruly, tortured, crisis-prone, nervy, melodramatic and just charming enough to make you forgive all of the above. It's like a teenager that way.
Audience Reviews for Grown Up Movie Star
A huge disappointment. Perhaps it was a matter of high expectations but the entire production was a true let down. Performances do not match the stellar reviews and the entire tale is rather dull.
director Adriana Maggs captures the ragged desolation and dark humour of Newfoundland's down-and-out extremes with an evocative drama that bubbles along a tide of dark comedy.
