"Stars in Shorts" lives up to its title by offering the likes of Judi Dench, Colin Firth, Jason Alexander, Keira Knightley, Lily Tomlin, Kenneth Branagh and Julia Stiles in films ranging from eight to 25 minutes.

A very mixed bag of short films, but Lily Tomlin, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Judi Dench and Penny Ryder make it worth catching.
