Jenna Ortega & Maddie Ziegler in Heartfelt Drama 'The Fallout' Trailer
"What are you feeling right now?" "I feel… mad." Warner Bros has unveiled an official trailer for the indie film The Fallout, marking the feature directorial debut of actress Megan Park. This first premiered at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival last year, and will be debuting streaming on HBO Max later this month. The film deals with the "fallout" of a school shooting - focusing on one young student named Vada who struggles with all the overwhelming emotions afterwards. Relationships with her family, friends and view of the world are forever altered. In the process, she befriends another student named Mia, who she had never been friends with before. Jenna Ortega co-stars with Maddie Ziegler, and a cast including Niles Fitch, Will Ropp, John Ortiz, Julie Bowen, and Shailene Woodley. This and Mass are the only films so far that honestly and appropriately deal with the crisis of school shootings in America. May be hard to watch but is worth it.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Megan Park's The Fallout, direct from YouTube:
Bolstered by new friendships forged under sudden and tragic circumstances, high schooler Vada (Jenna Ortega) begins to reinvent herself, while re-evaluating her relationships with her family, friends and her view of the world. Moving away from her comfortable routine, she starts taking chances with a series of quicksilver decisions that test her own boundaries and push her in new directions. As she spends more time with Mia (Maddie Ziegler), they grow closer, and Vada slowly redefines herself through their shared experiences, leading her further away from that day and closer to living her life in the now. The Fallout is written and directed by Canadian actress / filmmaker Megan Park, making her feature directorial debut after making music videos previously. Produced by Shaun Sanghani, Todd Lundbohm, David Brown, Cara Shine, Rebecca Miller, Joannie Burstein and Giulia Prenna. This initially premiered at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival last year. WB will debut Park's The Fallout streaming on HBO Max starting January 27th, 2022.
