The movie is overall very cute. It is a nice story that makes you smile and the protagonist is incredibly likable. The film is lit beautifully so it is very vibrant, attributing to a lighthearted tone. I would buy this film. I believe a child would enjoy this because it is clearly shot and it is a story that is easy to follow. It flows very well, and has a clear exposition, climax, and conclusion. It clearly makes sense, and is immensely watchable. There is one word in particular that may not be suitable for children, but it isn't wasted or used for shock value. It's used for effective comic effect. The film is shot beautifully. It is clear and crisp and everything can be seen. The colors are vibrant and the lighting makes the movie very appealing to watch. I enjoyed the sets and the Italian actors who are quite charming especially Eleonora Gentileschi. The dialogue is in Italian with English sub-titles. Recommended for ages 7 to 18.

I am so in love with the color palate of this film. The costumes are so great because they look really good on camera. It is eye catching and full of color. The director really spent time on props and making the movie set look like a movie set with trailers, props table, and craft services. The story takes through every aspect of shooting a film: costume, hair and makeup, waiting room, and on set. The story looks even more believable with the amount of extras in the background standing in as a crew member. The most appealing thing about this film is the camera that the film was shot on. There are very clear images of the actors and the color scheme makes the film more visually appealing. It definitely has a clear beginning, middle and end. The director includes subtitles in the film but the language is spoken so clearly. For people that are, like me, trying to learn some Italian, watching this film is a way to pick on some words and learn about the culture. The overall message and moral of the story is appropriate. However, the film does say one curse word throughout it - the word "bitch". I think a child would definitely enjoy this film because it shows what is like to be a child actor. The director really tackles all of the little things that actors must go through when shooting a film. It is about a young girl pursuing a big dream. Overall the film has great cinematography, costumes and a strong plot. I really related to this story because that's what it is like being on set with adults. They are all grumpy and tired and want to go home as soon as possible. They have to deal with divas and repeating the same motion for hours at a time, just to shoot one scene. The director definitely answers the question that most young kids have "What's it like being a movie actress?" Recommended for ages 10 to 18. Reviewed by Shelby R., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic
Stella Amore is a girl and her shoe size is 28 and a half. Today is a very important day for her, because she's about to fulfill her greatest dream: being an actress. But the magic world of cinema is not as magic as she thought, it is also made of people that no longer believe in dreams, and on the contrary some of them like to destroy them. How will Stella react to this new cruel and silly reality?
