"Starlet" (2012)

An unlikely friendship forms between 21 year-old Jane and the elderly Sadie after Jane discovers a hidden stash of money inside an object at Sadie's yard sale”(imdb)

The short summary didn't get me too curios, but when viewed I got sucked into this American independent movie right away. It is very beautiful shot, it was funny, with great acting, script, soundtrack and a beautiful, enjoyable main character.
You would probably think this is a typical girl-movie by the poster and summary, but it really is not.
Until now “Starlet” has only about 500 votes on imdb and with an average rating of 6,4. I can't see why it does not have a better score. This will be one of my favorite films of 2013. 

My rating: 9,5/10
