Critic Reviews of "Starlet"New York Daily NewsJanuary 08, 2013
Baker effectively juxtaposes two vastly different worlds, though he never makes the case that either is as significant as the gauzy visuals suggest.Chicago ReaderDecember 06, 2012
This is confident, engrossing storytelling, and the actors are terrific.Philadelphia InquirerDecember 06, 2012
Starlet sneaks up on you.Chicago TribuneDecember 06, 2012
Where it counts, "Starlet" ... allows its characters room to maneuver within the potential cliches.Chicago Sun-TimesDecember 06, 2012
The film itself deserves praise for its portraits of these two women and the different worlds they inhabit.San Francisco ChronicleNovember 30, 2012
The plotline is unpromising - young porn actress befriends crotchety old lady - and the setup is underwhelming. But stick with "Starlet," and you'll reap unexpected rewards.Arkansas Democrat-GazetteApril 27, 2013
...has a sunny SoCal vibe that belies its tawdry milieuCapital Times (Madison, WI)February 07, 2013
Their friendship goes nowhere you might expect - Sadie doesn't teach Jane any hard-won life lessons, and Jane doesn't try to rekindle Sadie's lost youth. There are no montages here.Willamette WeekJanuary 09, 2013
Either avoids or transcends nearly every cliché we've come to associate with American independent film.Time Out ChicagoJanuary 08, 2013
No amount of strong acting, however, can entirely compensate for the dramatic conveniences or every shrill appearance by Jane's cartoonishly despicable roommates.Film ThreatJanuary 03, 2013
"Starlet" is achingly sad, shrewdly funny, and shockingly honest.HollywoodChicago.comDecember 07, 2012
When the film has to get into more depth regarding its characters futures and pasts, it falters a bit but there's still a lot to like here.
