When Mei falls in love with Jay, a new transfer student at her school, love at first sight takes hold, providing her first journey into adulthood and what soon becomes her fondest childhood memory. Amongst her parents' divorce and bickering and her grandfather's death, Mei finds solace in Jay even as they begin a perilous journey into the mountainous wilderness to find her grandparents' home.

Critic Reviews for Starry Starry Night

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5)

  • The cumulative effect is more that of a handsomely crafted museum piece than a moving, emotional journey.

  • Tom Shu-Yu Lin tackles death, divorce, loneliness and first love with the eye of a painter and the heart of a child.

    Jul 5, 2012 | Rating: 4/5
  • A somewhat clunky family movie about childhood escapism, alternating a little too conveniently between the grim and the adorable.

    Jul 5, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • [Lin] can't make up for the fact that the film wants to say more about the fragility of childhood than it's capable of communicating through its characters and their delicate, perpetually uncertain situations.

  • A whimsical coming-of-age tale that takes a common theme - growing pains - and transforms it through exquisitely rendered CG effects and a heartfelt storyline.
