Sean Baker's "Prince of Broadway" was a fine second feature and an honest indie gem. Check out our interview with Baker and "Price of Broadway" presenter Lee Daniels below. His third film, "Starlet," is set to debut at SXSW on March 11 and stars Dree Hemingway. Check out the full poster and synopsis below:

STARLET explores the unlikely friendship between 21 year-old Jane (Dree Hemingway), and 85 year-old Sadie (Besedka Johnson), two women whose worlds collide in California's San Fernando Valley. Jane spends her time getting high with her dysfunctional roommates, Melissa and Mikey, while taking care of her Chihuahua, Starlet. Sadie, an elderly widow, passes her days alone, tending to her flower garden.

After a confrontation between the two women at Sadie's yard sale, Jane uncovers a hidden stash of money inside a relic from Sadie's past. Jane attempts to befriend the caustic older woman in an effort to solve her dilemma and secrets emerge as their relationship grows.

    Not to be too nerdy about things, but TAKE OUT came before PRINCE OF BROADWAY, and since it's one of the finest micro-budget DV movies ever, I had to clarify. Everybody should watch TAKE OUT if they haven't already. Stream it for free at SnagFilms.
