GOLD STAR Reviews & Awards

Best Feature Film (Art of Brooklyn Film Festival)

Audience Awards (Buffalo International Film Festival, Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival)

Hoka Award for Best Acting to Victoria Negri (Oxford Film Festival)

Best Supporting Actress to Catherine Curtin (Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival)


“Solid talent around a deeply emotional project.” –The ArtVoice


Negri has a compelling tale to tell about life, death, and love”

“We’ve all experienced crossroads similar to what Negri puts onscreen. What’s special is how she and her father grew closer during his final days”

“Curtin steals the show with her dedicated wife-mother role, and Vaughn silently supplies Carmine’s predicament wonderful heart and, at times, fire.” - FilmStage


"By its conclusion, the film leaves you with a sense of poignancy that feels earned. Plus, there are two important reasons to see Gold Star: One; the chance to see Robert Vaughn​ for his final performance, and, two; for Victoria Negri​. As a performer, she possesses a naturally engaging screen presence that draws notice, but it’s as an emerging filmmaker – a writer/director/producer – that deserves our attention most of all." – Valley Stage and Screen, David Appleford

“Vaughn’s performance is nuanced and simply stunning. He’s left us all with one final role that is worthy of his enduring legend.” –Out of the Past, Raquel Stetcher
