Critic Reviews for Starfish

All Critics (16)

Writer-director Bill Clark doesn't flinch from depicting the physical effects of Tom's illness, and neither does he pull any punches when it comes to showing us its gruelling emotional costs.

Movie Talk

Depicting a courageous fight back with compassion and sincerity, this capably played drama has its heart firmly in the right place.

Empire Magazine

A tale of endurance that is explored intimately but somewhat prosaically, this is probably better suited to television than cinema.

Observer (UK)

The "starfish" reference is milked heavily and becomes sickeningly obvious.

Times (UK)

Starfish is in fact a very thoughtful and tender examination of a relationship that is tested to the absolute limit.

The Sun (UK)

Clark's film treats bracing subject matter with honesty and often startling intimacy but never loses sight of the courage shown by this particular family and the many others in the country affected by a truly horrifying condition.
