Storyline

Nineteen year old Orla from Country Antrim wins 'Follow a Star' on the Irish national TV station. Her prize is a quest - to find C&W star Jed Wood, give him a kiss, and report on her adventure on the following week's show. Ray Timmons, a middle aged documentary cameraman, is the only person available to document her on her quest. Together they travel to New York, meet up with a jaded sound recordist, Mike, and set about chasing down Jed - arriving at film sets, recording studios, everywhere Jed is due to be. Their progress is followed by a couple of DJs on a local radio station. During the week the chase continues, their relationship changes, and they learn a lot about each other and bout pursuing their own dreams, before they return to face the music back home.

Not awful, just pretty terrible
27 May 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I had to see this film as I believe its important to support 'our own' as my mammy would say. However, it did NOT fly the flag for Ireland and Irish filmmakers, so Im afraid Mammy's theories are not always spot on! It starts out OK and then ends, well, disappointingly. It follows the cliché of Irish people being, well, Irish in the USA. And what is with the storyline of the radio station people following their progress?! Could have been left out with no loss to the storyline. Although I don't see this as a complete waste of time like the previous reviewer, it wasn't a great use of my time either. Its definitely a 'wait for the cheap DVD' film, and there's no need to see in cinema.
