The best films tell a good story, and this one does precisely that.
3 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Curse of the Sunset Starlet' brings a crafted tale into the intimate confines of a broken home.

The audience finds itself drawn into the dappled, scintillating light that stems from both diligently inventive artwork and the beams that first-class actors shine as they probe carefully through the shards of fractured relationships.

It is worth watching a few times to truly unpack all that is exactly happening. The surface story reveals more depth and details, and the work that Director Lori Precious and the actors and casting put into this well-written story reveal more and more, like a gem turned under a jeweler's lamp.

Believable, lovable and finely portrayed characters intertwine with magical realism at its best!
