The good people of Music Box Films Home Entertainment  have provided Disc Dish with three (3) Blu-ray editions of the just-released independent drama Starlet to give away to three lucky Disc Dish readers!

The acclaimed 2012 film focuses on the unlikely cross-generational friendship that develops between a young aspiring actress in Los Angeles and an elderly woman when their two worlds collide in a most unexpected way. Starring Dree Hemingway (great granddaughter of Ernest and daughter of Mariel) stars as sweet-smiling, blond-tressed 21-year-old Jane, and the late Besedka Johnson as the elderly woman who holds a fateful yard sale one hot L.A. day, Starlet is directed and co-written by Sean Baker. The well-received film led the indie pack last year when it won the Special Jury Prize at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival. Check out our review here!
