McKeller has crafted a sweet, witty film without employing cliche characterizations and pat plot points.

A pointless film about pointless people.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

McKellar's starring turn -- along with a strong final scene -- help him save his own film from the unfortunate crap heap

Audience Reviews for Childstar


The acting isn't always spot on, but the movie takes on a risky plot and succeeds for the most part.


Satire that's both sad and funny. Excellent performances from a great cast. Also, some beautiful cinematography.

Though it has its humorous moments, this film has more of a dramatic edge to it as the titular character struggles with his fame and trying to be a child.
