After Vietnam, Crystal Wyatt meets a returning soldier, Spencer Hill and although she is young they are drawn together and find they have a lot in common. Spencer's visit is fleeting and although he leaves, Crystal still thinks of him often. Crystal's father dies and her mother, who has never really loved Crystal, begins to mistreat her and use her as a skivvy. After years of this, Crystal is attacked and raped by her brother-in-law. When Crystal gets her father's shotgun to kill her brother-in law, her brother-in-law accidentally shoots her brother, and Crystal runs away from the farm to San Francisco where she becomes quite well known as a singer. Menawhile, Spencer has embarked upon a socially beneficial, yet ill-advised marriage, when he meets Crystal again in San Francisco. They embark on a hurtful affair, but the path does not run smooth for them. As intertwined as their lives are, it takes Spencer time to act like a decent man and do what is right. Written by
I hate this movie
Excellent love story between two young idealistic people, who in time realize what is important after they chased their dreams, is their love.
Star is an excellent Danielle Steel movie that shows the love between two people from the days of their idealistic youth and living through life's experiences by years of chasing their individual dreams.
Crystal is the female character's name, played by Jennie Garth, whose dream was to be a singer and actress. She became involved with her manager who took advantage of her career and her life with his possessiveness and deceptiveness, until he was murdered, for which Crystal was accused. Crystal telephoned her love and he traveled to California, utilized his lawyer's talents to represent her, and cleared her. She sent him back East to continue his work, but with the knowledge of when he is finished with his work and done all he can do and is ready, she'll be waiting.
Cystal's handsome love married the wrong woman, which he realized just prior to marrying after seeing Crystal singing in a night club he and his fiancé visited. His wife came from a family of power and repeatedly reminded him of this throughout their marriage focusing on opportunities her family could do for his career. His idealistic dream was to do good things for humanity, in conjunction with Senator Bobby Kennedy's run for the U.S. Presidency. His work took him to underdeveloped countries where he saw so many difficult situations for people of all ages. When he decided he had enough of his wife, her family and the whole scenario of the politics that go with it, he went home to Crystal and found he also had a son.
He expressed it well toward the end of the movie when he returned to California where Crystal and her son were (back on their family ranch), "Whereever you both are is home."
