xe2x80x9cStargirlxe2x80x9d is a beautiful-looking film, with striking cinematography and royal color themes of maroon and gold, as if the teenage battles at play are modern-day equivalents of ancient wars.
Not that the movie isnxe2x80x99t also in touch with the current ways of the world. (An influential high school podcast in xe2x80x9cStargirlxe2x80x9d is the 21st century equivalent of the previous generation of movies with a showdown court trial or a public hearing.)
Nearly every step of the way, xe2x80x9cStargirlxe2x80x9d finds just the right notes to find the right side of the line between precious and lovely, between arbitrary and plausible, between serendipitous and condescendingly magical.
Though dealing with a slightly younger generation, xe2x80x9cStargirlxe2x80x9d has the same level of intelligence and accomplished storytelling as xe2x80x9cLove, Simonxe2x80x9d and xe2x80x9cBooksmart.xe2x80x9d
