Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Starlet is an indie drama about a young woman who, after accidental good fortune, befriends an elderly lady. Despite the character's good intentions and a generally positive message of being rewarded for doing the right thing, the movie is set in and around the porn industry, and there are graphic sex scenes, nudity, and strong innuendo, as well as actual porn stars in the cast. Plus, one secondary character is a drug dealer, and many of the main characters smoke pot at some point. Language is also strong, including "f--k," and there's strong arguing.

Sexual Content

The main character and some of the secondary characters work in the porn industry. Viewers see a graphic scene of filming, with sex and nudity, both male and female. There are also several scenes of strong innuendo and many other references to the sex business. Two actual porn stars, Asa Akira and Manuel Ferrara, appear in the movie.


Characters have intense arguments, and, in one scene, a character gets upset and starts knocking objects over, but no one comes to blows.


Strong language includes many uses of "f--k," "s--t," and other explicit words.

Social Behavior

A character is given a complex moral conundrum; she tries to figure out how to do the right thing and finds herself rewarded in ways she never could have imagined.


Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One of the secondary characters is a drug dealer. Several characters -- in their 20s -- smoke pot during the course of the movie.
