Plot

The movie explores the whole Stratten story since Snider met her as an innocent and beautiful girl back in Canada until - unable to handle the success of his wife – he decided to end both her life and his own in a most grotesque way.

The film Star 80 is a strong, realistic movie that shows most aspects of Stratten career as they were. The story is mingled with some sort of ‘interviews’ where several people who actually met the real persons (Stratten, Snider) speak about the opinion they had about them.
