Rotten Tomatoes


The Starling Girl is a brilliant coming-of-age drama that follows 17-year-old Jem Starling as she struggles to find her place within the fundamentalist Christian community in Kentucky that attempts to suffocate her. It’s complex in the way that faith, community and family can get complicated, but everything changes when her magnetic youth pastor Owen returns to their church. An attraction between the two feels mutual, but is this God’s will or something else?
