Little Sister Trailer

"That's the way it is." Forager Films has debuted the first trailer for an indie drama called Little Sister, which premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and also played at BAMcinemaFest this summer. From writer/director Zach Clark, the film is about a young nun who returns home after her brother comes back from Iraq and rediscovers her youth as a goth girl. Addison Timlin stars as Colleen, with a cast including Ally Sheedy, Peter Hedges, Keith Poulson and Barbara Crampton. This eccentric little indie has some comedy to it, although reviews state it's "definitely a drama first: a tough familial drama consisting of broken souls seeking an avenue to mend fences." I'm not sure what to make of this, but it looks good. The description says it's "a schmaltz-free, pathos-drenched, feel good movie for the little goth girl inside us all."

Here's the first official trailer for Zach Clark's Little Sister, direct from YouTube:

October, 2008. Young nun Colleen (Addison Timlin) is avoiding all contact from her family, until an email from her mother announces, “Your brother is home.” On returning to her childhood home in Asheville, NC, she finds her old room exactly how she left it: painted black and covered in goth/metal posters. Her parents (Ally Sheedy and Peter Hedges) are happy enough to see her, but unease and awkwardness abounds. Her brother (Keith Poulson) is living as a recluse in the guesthouse since returning home from the Iraq war. During Colleen’s visit, tensions rise and fall with a little help from Halloween, pot cupcakes, and GWAR. Little Sister is both written and directed by American filmmaker Zach Clark, of White Reindeer, Vacation! and Modern Love Is Automatic previously. The film first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. Little Sister opens in limited theaters starting October 14th this fall. Interested?

    Heh, first scene in the trailer made me laugh. The last bit was also delivered just right. But the story feels like it might be clichéd, even with the one or two quirky touches added to the mix. Still, looks like there's some solid performances in this.
