Watch: First Trailer for Indie Drama 'Miss Stevens' Starring Lily Rabe
"I don't really have a lot of friends…" "I don't either." The Orchard has released a trailer for the award-winning indie drama Miss Stevens, which premiered at SXSW this year and won Best Actress. Lily Rabe stars as a high school English teacher who chaperones three of her students on a weekend trip to a drama competition, and things get pretty interesting. The cast includes Rob Huebel, Oscar Nuñez, Timothée Chalamet and Lili Reinhart. From this trailer, this film definitely looks like a quirky gem worth seeking out, with some vital wisdom for adults as well as teens. I'm curious about it. Worth taking a look at below.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Julia Hart's Miss Stevens, direct from YouTube:
When Miss Stevens chaperones three of her students - Billy, Margot and Sam - on a weekend trip to a drama competition, she discovers that coming of age stories aren't just for teenagers. Exploring the fine line between being a grown up and being a kid, Miss Stevens looks at the moment you realize maybe you're the responsible adult in the room, and what comes after you find out you're not who you thought you'd be. Miss Stevens is the directorial debut of filmmaker/writer Julia Hart, who co-wrote the script with Jordan Horowitz. The film first premiered at this year's SXSW Film Festival, where Lily Rabe won the award for Best Actress. The Orchard will release Miss Stevens in select theaters starting September 20th.

The teacher looks like a high school student. But this looks good. I dig Huebel.

I don't know. But I kinda like some good vibration (I just can't find another word to describe) about it. So, slightly, I'm interested ...

I liked this. Lily Rabe has been very good in other things I've seen her in and she certainly has a potent pedigree with a talented playwright as a father and a talented and well known actress as a mother. She's a talent in her own right, though, and this small film looks like it has depth and intelligence. I'll certainly keep an eye out for it. Thanks again for sharing such interesting stuff, Alex.

Seems a bit anemic...
