| It's Almost Interesting
I've always been a fan of Jennifer Connelly and when I heard she made a little scene Euro art film that had shades of Black Swan, I couldn't purchase the Blu-Ray soon enough. After watching it, I wish I'd just left it alone.

It's hard to call Etoile a bad film, because bad films usually fail at what they set out to do and I have no idea what Etoile set out to do in the first place. It's not a very thrilling thriller, it's not a very romantic romance, and it's not a very fantastical fantasy. It has elements of all these genres, but they never mesh and the story is simply poorly told.

Connelly is as good as one can expect given the material she has to work with and there are some striking shots here and there, but it doesn't amount to much in the long run.
