When the Starlight Ends Should Have Never Started
When the Starlight Ends
Directed by Adm Sigal
Written by Adam Sigal
Sometimes enjoying actors in TV series leads me to really great films made by the actors,* and sometimes they lead me to stinkers. The looping stories in this film made it hard to tell what was the story and what were side bits the author was writing so he could get over his failed marriage.** And Sam Heughan, who has been holding my attention in Outlander, failed to do so here.***
The verdict: Skip
Cost: $2.99 via Google Play
Where watched: at home
Consider watching instead:
*Steve Carell is a good example. He was great in the Office, but I’ve also enjoyed him in Dan in Real Life, Foxcatcher, The Big Short, Battle of the Sexes and Beautiful Boy.
**This film also featured terrible green screen stuff, and I couldn’t tell if that was due to budgetary constraints or an intentional feature.
***And, his performance here may have just diminished my enjoyment of him as Jamie Fraser in Outlander.
- Did you have a favorite scene in this film?
- This movie was so lackluster I can’t come up with a second question.
Favorite IMDB trivia item:
Kane Knox is the cute baby in this picture.
(This was the only trivia item and I have no idea who Kane Knox is.)
