Storyline

Grown Up Movie Star tells the story of disgraced NHL star Ray and his precocious daughters Ruby and Rose. Once the town hero, Ray has returned home to Newfoundland from the US following a drug conviction, only to have his wife Lillian leave him for another man and aspirations of stardom. With Lillian gone, Ray flails from woman to woman trying to find a replacement for her, while struggling against a growing awareness of his homosexuality. At loose ends for lack of guidance, Ruby is becoming increasingly curious about her own sexuality and, in a desperate plea for attention, putting herself in increasingly risky situations. Ruby begins spending more and more time with Ray's best friend Stuart, confined to a wheelchair following an accident involving Ray. When Stuart finds himself attracted to Ruby, dangerously motivated by fear and anger, he leads the three of them towards a heartbreaking conclusion. Written by Anonymous

0 out of 10 if I could
30 January 2010 | by SkylerbairdSee all my reviews

Now I am not a professional critic but I have seen many freelance and independent films. Even worked on a few myself. lighting was unrealistic at times. Also if whoever came up with the bright idea of making a Child and gay Porno wanted to help they should not have showed up to work. I understand aspiring actors and movie directors would like to create shock and awe but let's do it for the right reasons because we can change the world not make everyone gag... Normally I wouldn't be so critical but this was quite possibly the worst movie I've seen my entire life and yes i did see the blare witch project.

We had a group of what I would consider About 10 fairly liberal individuals and almost half of us walked out.... The others wish they had.

That being said there is GREAT directing potential! The talents and abilities of all involved will change the world. I am sure of that... It's all about how they decide to change it, for better or for worse.
