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.


Taylor Brandon Burns (Mark Rendall), a conflicted young 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.



The region 1 DVD was released September 13, 2004.
