A new video has been released with Sian Heder discussing her her film Tallulah, which premieres in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and releasing on Netflix worldwide! A new clip featuring Ellen Page and Allison Janney begins at 0:27 –
Young vagabond Lu (Ellen Page) lives in a van and is fiercely independent in her hand-to-mouth existence. This daily struggle has become tiresome for her privileged boyfriend, Nico (Evan Jonigkeit), who unceremoniously leaves her one night. 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: Nico’s unsmiling academic mother, Margo (Allison Janney), who believes she’s the child’s grandmother. Thrown together despite differences in class and worldview, Margo and Lu make a lovable, if tense, odd couple. The two are bound to each other as they tentatively form a haphazard family, though Margo has no idea that the police are hot on Lu’s trail for absconding with a child.
In the winsome lead performances, Ellen Page plays the scrappy, free-spirited Lu while Allison Janney’s Margo is equal parts measured and bemused as their characters wrestle, and often clash, over responsibility, motherhood, and their uncertain futures. Writer/director Sian Heder combines warmth, madcap humor, and a deep understanding of human nature in this delightful dramatic comedy about the serendipitous unpredictability of life.
Today we have some new/old portraits from the Sundance Film Festival back in January by The Hollywood Reporter.
