"Starman from Heaven": a coming of age gay musical (short film) from Brighton, England with a teen director and producer
“Starman from Heaven” by Elliot Kershaw, starring Jamie Lye and Milo Wilson, bills itself as an award-winning gay short by a 17-year-old director and producer, just published.
The story concerns two friends, one of whom is just now coming out, as they both belong to a boy band in Brighton (Beach), England, not to be confused with the neighborhood in Brooklyn, NYC.
Much of the 19-minute film shows the band performing in a theater on the beach.
The film stays in PG-13 territory, except that one of the characters is often shown smoking.
The original music is by James Grantham.
