Welcome to the wild world of sudden, outrageous, global celebrity—and its price tag. Internationally acclaimed, two-time Oscar-nominated director Denys Arcand ingeniously uses the ever-watchful eyes of dozens of television cameras to provide a provocative exposé of our fame-obsessed culture in Stardom, a spicy and darkly humorous tale of a young model’s meteoric rise. The result is a unique reflection of celebrity in which life imitates art, art imitates life, and the media imitates anything and everything.

"Arcand succeeds by being both intimate and detached from his subject matter, namely, listening to the repetitive beats from the heart of the American star making machine."
