Starfish: Directed by A.T. White. With Virginia Gardner, Christina Masterson, Eric Beecroft, Natalie Mitchell. A unique, intimate portrayal of a girl grieving for the loss of her best friend, which just so happens to take place on the day the world ends.
Virginia Gardner is really the only reason this film works as well as it does and it does work to a certain extent. The premise is somewhat overshadowed by the betrayal at the end, and this film from 2018 has the distinct feel of a film made during the pandemic, with only a couple scenes featuring more than a single actor. Was it the budget or a creative choice to make everything feel so alone and isolated?
