Plot: Well received indie film about two orphaned sisters, one of whom, Mary, is a fifteen year old suffering from cystic fibrosis, while the other, Penny, is a twentysomething free spirit. Penny, an erstwhile poet, supports Mary and herself by prostituting herself and seems headed towards disaster until she starts getting letters from a convict (Sweeney) who has read her book of poetry and attracts the attention of a young man who lives around the corner. An intense story about life, death, alienation and the need for human contact, THE BOOK OF STARS is a beautifully filmed and ultimately uplifting meditation on these themes.
