A little bit of “Showgirls”, a little taste of Yeşilçam cinema, and a little air of early-Almodóvar cheekiness – this should be the most fitting definition for the genuine formula of this lively made-in-Mexico melodrama. Valentina, who goes on stage at a night club, is as flamboyant as her flatmate Joana is reclusive. These two trans women’s lives change as the star performer position becomes vacant in the night club where Valentina works. Getting one step closer to the star status for which she has been waiting for years, Valentina suddenly gets confronted with a new rival: La Madonna, the new lover of the club’s merciless boss. This rivalry makes Valentina become merciless against her flatmate Joana as well. Impudently camp and possessing the spirit of punk-rock, “Lonely Stars” is a melodrama that entertains its audience non-stop with its rhythm that never slows down.

He had imagined the court room as a big place. It wasn’t. It was about the size of his living room, with an elevation at one end, with a dais on it. The judges and the attorneys sat there. Below it was an old wooden rail, worn out in some places. That was his place. There was another seat for his lawyer. At the back, about 20 or 30 chairs were stowed out for the non-existent crowd.
