“Tallulah” – Film Clip – #4 Dead
Life can be a real mother.
Tallulah, the Netflix original film, was written and directed by Sian Heder (Orange is the New Black), and tells the story of young vagabond, Lu (Ellen Page – Whip It, Inception), 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 – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Way, Way Back), who mistakenly believes she’s the child’s grandmother. Tammy Blanchard (Into the Woods, Moneyball), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Girls), John Benjamin Hickey (The Good Wife, Manhattan) and Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black, The Wiz Live!), also round out the cast.
A Netflix Original Film. Arrives July 29, 2016.
As revealed by director Patricia Rozema in an interview back in December, the upcoming film is based on the true story of bookseller and publisher Sylvia Beach, the founder of legendary Paris bookstore Shakespeare and Company, and her lifelong partner Adrienne Monnier. It will be set in 1920’s Paris.
Ellen Page will star as Sylvia Beach, and according to WWD, Diane Kruger will play Beach’s lover, Adrienne Monnier. Another currently unnamed well-known actor has also been attached to the project. This will mark Page’s second collaboration with Rozema, following Into The Forest (2015). Filming will begin in March.
Shakespeare and Company gained considerable fame after it published James Joyce’s controversial Ulysses in 1922. Beach also encouraged the publication and sold copies of, Hemingway’s first book, Three Stories and Ten Poems (1923).
Kruger told People Magazine: “We play lovers, so we will get to know each other very well,” she says, adding, “I’ve never kissed a woman.”
“Luckily, [Evan] said yes, so then we were like, I guess we need to hang out all the time because we’re playing sisters,” Into the Forest star Ellen Page, says of co-star Evan Rachel Wood.
Ahead of the EFM, Celsius Entertainment has boarded sales on writer-director Patricia Rozema’s (Mansfield Park) apocalyptic/eco drama Into the Forest, set to star Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood.
Page also produces the Canadian feature, based on Jean Hegland’s novel of the same name, which begins filming this coming April on Vancouver Island.
Into The Forest recounts the story of two sisters, played by Page and Wood, struggling to survive after the collapse of society in the not too distant future.
Producers are Page and Karine Martin, executive producers are Sriram Das, Kelly Bush Novak and Haroon Saleem. Mediabiz will co-finance.
