This is a movie that so privileges the perspective of the good-looking foofy-haired white male that it makes you understand the absolutely pejorative aspect of the term "heteronormative."
Lowell's considerable charm goes a long way toward filling in the gaps and the story's emphasis on self-discovery over romantic couplings supplies enough interest to sustain the brisk 80-minute running time.
Gives us a story of love among 20-somethings without telling us enough about the main characters to indicate why we should care about their perfectly ordinary entanglements.
Beware any movie that talks about what it is before being what it is.
Straining to meld a love triangle with an astronomy lesson, the rom-com "The Brightest Star" disappears into a black hole of cliché.
Far from burning bright, this earnest indie starts out dull and gets duller.
The chief problem is that no matter what the nameless dude is up to, it hardly seems to matter.
Shallow, contrived, toothless and ultimately forgettable.
Notable for its effective performances and for the sincerity with which it tries to capture the confusion of young adulthood, but it often chooses simplicity over depth.
Brightest Star is a dim boy-meets-girl relationship drama that is low on conflict and charm, despite a relatable premise and a strong young ensemble.
For all the Hollywood obsession with high-concept and special effects, sometimes there's something enchanting about a simple story simply told, and a movie of small rather than grand gestures.
Nicely acted coming-of-age story feels oddly dated and lacks resonance.
