Another lovely review for Starfish has been shared on Movie Review World. Read it in full on that site. 

The entire cast are flawless, and in particular Ellie Copping (who’s not so young now) gives a standout performance as young Grace. With few words she manages to convey an emotion beyond her years as she gives us, the audience, a window in, showing us how this huge change affects the life of a child.

Starfish on Twitter shared this photo of what appears to be the poster for the film. They have never shared an actual poster in any form, just this photo of one from the Edinburgh Film Festival screening last night. All traces of the trailer on the Edinburgh Film Festival website have been removed also. Odd promotion compared to Tom's other indie film premiering this weekend, Pushing Dead, which has a poster, a trailer as well as a little bit of press interest generated in advance of the screening.

Da Vinci's Demons season 3 was released on DVD and Blu-ray yesterday in the US, and a few new reviews for it have beem shared online. One review from Inside Pulse, clearly written without ever actually watching the show on DVD or Blu-ray - they awarded 3 out of 5 for included extras, where there are none - can be discounted. I hope no-one actually got paid for writing that piece.
