A Clever "Casablanca" Update
16 September 2016 | by bpmcleodSee all my reviews

Nathan Fillion ("Firefly", "Castle") is Rick to Angeline Ball's ("The Commitments", "Eastenders") Ilsa in this thinly veiled homage to Casablanca. "Star Crossed" is great fun for fans of "Casablanca", but this time the events take place 114 years after the original 1942 movie. Occupying aliens stand-in for Germans and Captain Louis Renault is now a Russian woman, all crossing paths at a coffee bar in a remote neutral city. Deals are cut, threats are made, and old romances are rekindled. It's all very familiar, right down to the crucial confrontation just before take-off. There's no piano player, but Angelina Ball displays the talents which made her a star in her native Ireland.
