Genre: Comedy

Plot: Canadian actor/director Don McKellar (HIGHWAY 61, EXOTICA, LAST NIGHT) skewers the self-obsessed world of Hollywood celebrity with his wry indie comedy, CHILDSTAR. As the popular star of a top-rated American sitcom, 12-year-old Taylor Brandon Burns (Mark Rendall) is a spoiled, world-weary cynic facing the dual pressures of stardom and impending puberty. Sent on location to Toronto, Canada, Taylor suffers a mini-breakdown and runs away from the set, prompting his overbearing show-biz mother, Suzanne (Jennifer Jason Leigh), to enlist the help of their resentful limo driver, Rick Schiller (McKellar), himself a struggling filmmaker. Bolstered by McKellar's trademark low-key humor and emotional complexity, CHILDSTAR is both a gleeful Hollywood satire and a poignant coming-of-age dramedy.
