Childstar is a 2004 comedy film directed and written (with the help of Michael Goldbach) by Don McKellar. It was screened at several film festivals between September 2004 and July 2005.

Plot[edit]

Taylor Brandon Burns (Mark Rendall), a conflicted twelve-year-old TV star from the U.S., runs away from the set - and his problems - while shooting a big-budget film in Canada. His reluctant limo-driver, Rick Schiller (Don McKellar), a down-on-his-luck indie filmmaker, is enlisted to find Taylor before the childstar destroys himself.
