Movie Reviews

  • the film treats bracing subject matter with honesty and often startling intimacy but never loses sight of the courage shown by this particular family; The heroic cast certainly play their parts by raising awareness through an undeniably affecting drama
    4 of 5 by Trevor Johnston [Radio Times ]
  • Joanne Froggatt and Tom Riley both giving finely calibrated performances that make you believe not just in the couple's current predicament but in the strength of their bond
    4 of 5 by Amber Wilkinson [Eye for Film (UK) ]
  • it's a tough watch. A tale of endurance that is explored intimately but somewhat prosaically, this is probably better suited to television than cinema
    2 of 5 by Wendy Ide [The Observer ]
  • has good performances, but the story may be better served with a documentary
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • depicting a courageous fight back with compassion and sincerity, this capably played drama has its heart firmly in the right place
    3 of 5 by David Parkinson [Empire Magazine ]
  • Bill Clark's gruelling but commendable drama based on true events; Starfish is commendably restrained, thoughtful and well-acted but that doesn't stop it being a tough film to endure
    3 of 5 by Alan Hunter [List Film (UK) ]
  • a dynamic British indie that highlights essential human drama in amongst an inconspicuous disease, Starfish packs a potent punch about life's fragility
    4 of 5 by Chloe Catchpole [Den of Geek ]
  • a brutally honest family drama that boasts a pair of great lead performances
    3 of 5 by Mike Tsenti [Little White Lies ]
