The latest issue of Heat magazine, on sale in UK today, carries a 4 star review for Starfish, with some kind words to say about Tom and Joanne Froggatt's performances. Read it above.
What's On TV also shared a lovely review for the film, released this Friday 28th October in the UK.
Writer-director Bill Clark doesn’t flinch from depicting the physical effects of Tom’s illness, and neither does he pull any punches when it comes to showing us its gruelling emotional costs. As a result, Starfish is a tough watch, at times. But the committed performances of Riley and Joanne Froggatt, playing Tom’s wife Nic, herself battling against the odds to hold the family together, keep us powerfully engaged. In addition, Clark’s writing and directing thankfully steer clear of the clichés and melodrama of the disease-of-the-week TV movie genre, and his sober approach makes Starfish all the more affecting.
