Exclusive Clip From Dustin Lance Black’s Virginia


ComingSoon.net has an exclusive clip from Oscar-winning Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black’s directorial debut Virginia, starring Jennifer Connelly in the title role of a single mother living in the South and trying to raise her son Emmett (Harrison Gilbertson).

For years, she’s been having an affair with the town’s highly-religious and married sheriff Richard Tipton (Ed Harris) who may or may not be Emmett’s father, but when the sheriff decides to run for office, he has to end the relationship immediately. Meanwhile, Emmett has gotten into his own relationship with the sheriff’s daughter (Emma Roberts) and the two of them want to run off together.

In the clip below, we get a good idea of the kinky relationship between Virginia and Sheriff Tipton before her son Emmett gets an eyeful of something he probably shouldn’t have seen.

Virginia opens in select cities on Friday, May 18.
