Movie Reviews

“With a predictable trajectory and cringeworthy metaphors, ‘The Starling’ is so slushily sentimental it makes the typical tearjerker look like a noir.” Caryn James: The Hollywood Reporter 

“An astonishingly treacly film that’s meant to be inspirational but is something close to agony to sit through” Todd McCarthy: Deadline 

“[It] expends so much energy trying to tug at your heartstrings that it never bothers to develop a pulse of its own. It’s a stubbornly shallow film (…) It’s a visually flat film (…) Rating: ?½ (out of 4)” Brian Tallerico: rogerebert.com
