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.


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.

Wonderfully natural perfromances of an all too real situation. Holds a mirror to hypocrisy. JJL is extremely good here.
