Frankie Starlight Movie Review

byrne walker dillon matt

Frankie Starlight was among my favorites at 1995's crop of films at the San Francisco International Film Festival. The stars on the record are Anne Parrillaud, Matt Dillon, and Gabriel Byrne, but the real stars are Alan Pentony and Corban Walker, who play the title character as a child and as an adult. The film shows what led up to Walker writing a novel about his tragic mother (Parrillaud) and her lovers (Byrne and Dillon), as well as the repercussions after his book is published. Also in the cast is young Georgina Cates, who created such a vivid impression in Mike Newell's An Awfully Big Adventure earlier in 1995. Michael Lindsay-Hogg directs this beautifully filmed tale by Chet Raymo and Ronan O'Leary.
