Tallulah Trailer

"That's just no way to live, she needs you…" Netflix has debuted the official trailer for an indie film called Tallulah, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Ellen Page stars as Tallulah, a struggling homeless woman who ends up with an impromptu babysitting job for a wealthy, careless mother and takes the baby for herself. This is a drama but has some good levity in it, as you'll see in this trailer. Tallulah is trying to do the right thing by actually giving the baby genuine love and care, which her real mother was not providing. Also starring Allison Janney, Tammy Blanchard, Zachary Quinto, John Benjamin Hickey and Uzo Aduba. It's a solid film, with a strong performance by Ellen Page. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer for Sian Heder's Tallulah, direct from Netflix's YouTube:

Tallulah Poster

Tells the story of young vagabond, Lu (Ellen Page), who lives in a van and is fiercely independent in her hand-to-mouth existence. When a chance encounter incites her to impulsively "rescue" a baby from a negligent mother, Lu, at a loss for what to do, turns to the only responsible adult she knows: Margo (Allison Janney), who mistakenly believes she's the child's grandmother. Tallulah is both written and directed by Sian Heder, making her feature directing debut after working on the show "Orange is the New Black". The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it was acquired by Netflix. They will be releasing Tallulah exclusively on Netflix starting July 29th this summer. Anyone interested?

      Yeah, it looks surprisingly real ...
  • Bo tears in my eyes watching this trailer...imagine that...weird!
  • This baby is so cute! I want to hug her.
  • Higgens
    This the movie that tries to justify kidnapping?
    • No, but it very delicately crosses the line... There are obviously ramifications for her taking the child, but the point of it is to ask the question - if the real mom is incompetent and ignorantly putting a child in harm's way, is it better for someone else to care for it? Just a matter of the circumstances and the interesting story that leads to that is what makes this a movie.

        Easy you call CPS not kidnap a child and make yourself a felon. Pretty sure I will hate this movie if it at all tries to make me feel bad for a kidnapper.
        • To each his own. I didn't think the mother deserved the child by the end...
      • shiboleth
        Well, that's one among other things that movies should do: show perplexities of life and not to make mockery of them ...

    I didn't expect this to look good. Finally, a film that won't be easy to watch until the end ...
