Addison Timlin is a Goth Nun in the Little Sister Trailer
One of our absolute favorite films of this year’s Fantasia Fest was the Addison Timlin-starrer Little Sister, a new dramedy from writer/director Zach Clark (White Reindeer) and producer Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies). Now Forager Films has released the trailer, which you can check out below! Also click here to read our rave review of the film!
It’s 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 a sad comedy about family – a schmaltz-free, pathos-drenched, feel good movie for the little goth girl inside us all.
Little Sister opens at The Metrograph in New York on October 14 and The Arena Cinema in Los Angeles on October 28; additional cities to follow. Also keep an eye out for our interviews with director Zach Clark and co-star Barbara Crampton!
