Indie Trailer Sunday: Elgin James' Teen Drama 'Little Birds' Trailer
"What is this place?" "This is where we live." Today's trailer, delivered on Easter Sunday as a treat for those who want something a bit rebellious, is for an indie drama called Little Birds, that premiered at Sundance back in 2011. Apple recently released an official trailer, starring Juno Temple and Kay Panabaker as two teenage girls and their escapades as they run away to Los Angeles. The cast includes Leslie Mann, Kate Bosworth, Neal McDonough and Kyle Gallner. It looks like a charming, rebellious, fun teen drama, but I remember the film getting some dismal reviews at the festival. Give the trailer a look below anyway!
Watch the official theatrical trailer for Elgin James' Little Birds, in high def from Apple:
Fifteen year-old Lily (Temple) and her best friend Alison (Panabaker) live on the shores of the Salton Sea among rundown trailers parks. Lily feels eternally claustrophobic and rebellious, living with her manic, single mother, clinging to hope for something more exciting than visits with her already washed up Aunt.
Little Birds is the feature debut of Elgin James, written and directed by the Boston-area musician-turned-filmmaker. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in early 2011 after being developed at the Sundance Screenwriters lab. Millennium Entertainment is finally releasing Little Birds in limited theaters this summer, but no official release date has been set just yet. For more updates, visit their Facebook page.
