"I am an avid listener of audiobooks, and I've never heard anything as unique as "Starstruck." Not only does Michael Kutza tell the fascinating story of how he started the Chicago International Film Festival from scratch and built it into a world class organization that is now almost 60 years old - that is inspiring enough, but "Starstruck" has the voices of all the the "A List" stars on there talking about how Kutza helped them get to where the are today. From Tom Cruise, Martin Scorsese, Oliver Stone and Liv Ulman, to Michael Douglas, the stars entertain us with vivid tales of how Kutza affected their lives and their careers. The audiobook is truly wonderful and you will love it. I promise."

— Lynda O'Connor (5 out of 5 stars)
