Starlet (2012) Trailer


Trailer for Starlet.

Always with her Chihuahua Starlet by her side, the drop-dead gorgeous Jane (Dree Hemingway, daughter of Mariel) sports an array of short shorts, lives in a nondescript, carpeted manor with two pot-smoking, videogame-playing compadres, and doesn’t seem to hold a steady job.(Is she in show business?) Elderly Sadie (Besedka Johnson, cast at a local YMCA), widowed and crotchety, has a constant chip on her shoulder. She dreams of Paris, and gets her kicks losing at Bingo.

The two have a run-in at Sadie’s yard sale, where Jane buys a thermos she thinks will work well as a vase; while cleaning it, she discovers a hidden stash of $10,000. When she goes back to return the money, Sadie pushes her away, brusquely, yet Jane—played by Hemingway with a blend of generosity, innocence, and emotional intelligence—feels the need to keep reaching out. Sean Baker’s rapturously shot, always enthralling feature observes these two women inhabit their spaces, and meditates on the true meaning of friendship.
