Child stardom now feels like one of the last aspirations of a decadent, no-future America. And “Showbiz Kids” is an invaluable primer of its risks and rewards.

An excellent HBO documentary directed by Alex Winter, a one-time child actor himself, punctuated by the voices of those who have lived the experience.

Framed from the hindsight of #MeToo, the stories told by Milla Jovovich and Evan Rachel Wood are particularly harrowing.

From a purely cinephile perspective, Showbiz Kids digs into the vaults with some great footage of interviews, auditions, and behind-the-scenes activity featuring the stars of E.T., Stand By Me, and other classics.
