Instant Star is about
20 February 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Jude Harrisson who defies the odds and wins a singer/writer contest. We get to know her and her family more, and the rivalry between her and her sister, and everyone else in the business or at school, etc. She struggles between doing her thing and doing something that would be a wiser career choice. Of course the big shots of the business think she's too young and want to control everything from her music to her looks. And it seems that everything in her life is happening so quickly, like her love life, her career life, everything. She goes from being a nobody to being a somebody in a blink of an eye, and it's quite overwhelming.
