Star's life in the foster system didn't dull her dreams, but it did give her the strength to pursue them. Committed to following the path to fame in the cut-throat music industry, the singer tracks down her sister, Simone, and her best friend from Instagram, Alexandra, and the trio make their way to Atlanta. Once there, they find support in the form of mother-figure Carlotta and a down-and-out talent agent named Jahil who takes an interest in Star. As the young women chase down their dream, they find that ambition has a price and sometimes that price is too high.
A “star” isn’t just what the core trio of characters are striving to be; it’s also the name of the lead character, a headstrong hellion who escapes from her awful foster family and heads off to rescue her sister from a similarly wretched home life. On paper, there’s nothing wrong with a show venturing into surreal or hyper-real territory; used well, that kind of colorful foray can add texture and dimension to the characters’ hopes and ambitions. But each person on “Star” is so flatly delineated and depicted that there’s not much for those flashy moments to illuminate. At least the music videos have the kind of energy and momentum the rest of “Star” lacks, but its attempts to examine faith, mental illness, human trafficking and other issues come off as rote and occasionally tone-deaf.--Maureen Ryan, Variety, December 8, 2016
