    Poster of the movie Childstar
    2004     Comedy-drama    
    1h 38min

    Sitcom icon Taylor Brandon Burns, the world's most famous child actor, is outsourced to Canada. He is to save the world in The First Son, an action-comedy blockbuster scheduled for summer release. Rick Schiller, experimental filmmaker, is assigned as the 12-year-old's driver. The kid is a monstrous brat, but the job does have its side benefits, liberally provided by Taylor's lonely mom, Suzanne. Rick even seems to be making some progress in establishing trust with the lad, when the pressures of work, family, and fast-approaching adolescence finally become too much for the young star -- Taylor runs away, presumably with some girl. The First Son grinds to a halt. The film's producers and Taylor's agents are thrown into a panic. It's up to Rick to find Taylor before the press catches wind of the situation and all hell breaks loose.
