A Small But Illuminating Short Film from Sofia Coppola

While it's a small film often shown on IFC, "Lick the Star" is an excellent, illuminating film shot in black & white by Lance Acord (who also worked with Coppola in her masterpiece "Lost in Translation" about a young 7th grade queen who becomes outcasted by her peers. Like "Lost in Translation" and "The Virgin Suicides", the theme of disconnection is predominant throughout the whole film. How a young girl is like a snob with all of her friends and one of them turns on her and in the process, things go to hell for the young woman. The film has an excellent soundtrack as well. For those who loved her full-length features, "Lick the Stars" is a must-see for any fan of Sofia Coppola who will be a director that will amaze us all.

From Queen of Seventh Grade to outcast is but a slip away.

Cruelty seems an innate skill in this story of junior high school girls. The cliques and the cruel plots and schemes that girls (and boys) can be prone to in that period between when they first start coming into their power as individuals and have yet to develop the emotional maturity that enables the responsibility that comes with power.

A fantastic b&w short

As an avid watcher of IFC's Short Film Collection, I rarely see a short film that sticks with me after I have changed the channel. Sofia Coppola's 'Lick the Star' is the only exception to my nearly daily ritual. It is pitch perfect on showing the way teenagers lose interest in true friendship and begin sharing the same brain and thinking the same thoughts. It's shot in a haunting black and white and uses a fantastic array of music that added to the emotion of the movie. Overall it was a great short film that would be great to own. This film was made before Coppola won an Academy-Award winner but after her also disturbing-girl-coming-of-age story The Virgin Suicides. You can see the greatness of this film simply on how it's directed, with honesty and devotion that Coppola always brings to her films. A must-see.
