      Michelle Very honest and accurate take on growing up in very rural town. Especially for those that don't fit in and are trying to find themselves. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/02/24 Full Review Suzanne W This was likely one of the better films I have seen on the free streaming sites. I admit, when the men started heading for the house with their baseball bats in hand, I had to pause for a second or two. There is quite a bit of that sort of thing in films for all sorts of reasons, and it is hard to watch because it is truly the way things were (are). I was a little disappointed with the ending but not totally surprised. Very sweet friendship between the girls. Rotten nasty parents. Good acting. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The storyline was great but the ending left me wanting more Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member sick of byg at this point and idk even know if she's dead, however cute friendship. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member A really nice story with decent acting performances and a final that will divide opinions. A must watch. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member So simple and beautiful. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Nell Minow AWFJ.org Director Martha Stephens skillfully evokes the pettiness and unspoken longing of small town life and gets wonderfully natural performances from her young actors. Nov 22, 2021 Full Review Leslie Felperin Guardian The period trappings - which must have cost a bomb - are lush and smartly deployed without being heavy-handed, and the two young leads are very watchable. Rated: 3/5 May 27, 2020 Full Review Ryan Lattanzio indieWire There's a grit and urgency to "To the Stars," of something bigger and darker coming along with the changing times. Rated: B Apr 27, 2020 Full Review Zofia Wijaszka FirstShowing.net While Stephen's production is not an innovative film that bends the standards of cinema, it's certainly an eye-opening coming-of-age story. Rated: B+ Feb 13, 2022 Full Review Natasha Alvar The Critical Movie Critics With each other, both [Maggie and Iris] find a space to belong, daring to reach for the stars towards a space beyond this myopic town... Mar 22, 2021 Full Review Nick Boyd Battle Royale With Cheese While not an easy watch at times, the performances are strong and what the characters are experiencing is movingly depicted. The power of female friendship and heartbreak and the tentative steps toward first love are subtly portrayed... Aug 31, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
