Netflix just released the first official trailer and poster for the original dramatic film, Tallulah. Written and directed by Sian Heder (Orange is the New Black), the cast is led by Ellen Page (Juno, Inception) and Allison Janney (Mom, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) and includes Tammy Blanchard (Into the Woods), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), John Benjamin Hickey (The Good Wife), and Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black). Tallulah will be available on Netflix on July 29, 2016.
Tallulah premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and earned director Sian Heder a Grand Jury Prize nomination. The film is inspired by Heder’s 2006 short film, Mother.
The Plot: Tallulah tells the story of young vagabond, Lu (Page), 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 (Janney), who mistakenly believes she’s the child’s grandmother.
