I loved Chris Lowell like I love Jacob Pitts: like a 14 year old girl. I'm married with two pre-teeage daughters, so you do the math.

But, in watching "Bright Star"( something I did because.....Chris Lowell) I realized one important difference between the two actors. Both are absolutely gorgeous: yet one (Pitts) can act. He also commands the screen no matter how small the part and his native intelligence and sense of humor also shine through .

Chris Lowell, if this movie is evidence, has none of those qualities besides the shayna punim. "The Brightest Star" is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

I did learn a few things from this movie.
1) If you're a guy, always find a beautiful girl with incredibly rich parents. You'll get a fabulous apartment & stunning backdrops. (The "country " house, for a one.) As a born and bred NYC girl, I can tell you rich girls with good taste and summer homes aren't that difficult to find . As a movie goer, I can say using their presence to play out the struggle and pain of post college life is off putting.

2) Always make sure one of the girls your involved with has an understanding and rich father , who will be willing to give you (a liberal arts grad with no business experience) a high paying job in his business, which by movie's end, will be rejected because "punching a clock" is just not what gives your life meaning .

3) At a critical point in your life, when you're confused and at a loss; the following tropey people are willing to give you encouragement, guidance and sometimes money: the older, "been there", brilliant and usually unmarried woman and/or the warm and fuzzy Jewish guy who is never as attractive as the leads - not ever.

The protagonist is a vile, amoral, parasitic weakling who lives off women, while he lies , cheats, and complains about not having the dream career he has done NOTHING to earn. The fact that some people consider this normal, excusable behavior is the most troubling reflection on how far modern ethical standards have deteriorated. In reality, most characters who behave in such a manner
will never become admirable or fulfill their responsibilities to the naive souls unfortunate enough to depend on them. Another look at the spoiled brat generation the US has sadly produced. Technically the film was decently shot and directed, but it's difficult to watch someone vapidly narcissistic.

i am not understanding how anyone could give this movie 5 stars. It felt like nothing really happened. I'm glad it was short but it still felt like a waste of time. One of the other bad reviews pointed out all the things wrong with it, and they basically hit it on the head.

I've never felt as if a movie was trying to smother me before, so that's new. The pacing and the writing feel soooo sloooow b/c only the most boring, derivative tropes are utilized. It is totally the writer and director's fault. This is a 15 minute short about an emotional moocher too afraid to make decisions for himself and it is stretched out for 2 hours. Kill.. Me... Now...

realistic movie about people graduating from college and drifting away from each other and trying to figure out what they want to do and who they are. very realistic-not for hippies or rom com lovers.

This movie was jusk ok. It's just your typical young people coming into their own. Nothing ever really grabbed me. The actors where good enough, but the plot was lacking. Could have just as easily been someone making a documentary about the twenty something set. Can't say I would recommend this film, and am glad that it was free through my Prime Membership, or otherwise, I'd be less then happy that I'd paid to watch.

This movie starts in a place that many have been. After college the protagonist is trying to figure out what to do with his life. Should he be a short order cook, a business mogul, a scientist or a janitor. The fact that he considers high flying and then meanial professions makes this unbelievable. His relationships are also cold and unbelievable. The acting is mediocre and I found it hard to watch to the end as I was bored and unconnected to the characters and story.
