Dance Moms breakout star Maddie Ziegler is featured in the new video clip from The Book of Henry. The nearly three minute clip from the dramatic thriller shows Ziegler’s character participating in her school’s talent show. Gregg Hurwitz (Orphan X) wrote the script, Jurassic World‘s Colin Trevorrow directed, and Naomi Watts, Jaeden Lieberher, Jacob Tremblay, Sarah Silverman, Lee Pace, and Dean Norris star in the Focus Features release.

The Book of Henry opens in theaters on June 16, 2017.

The Plot: Sometimes things are not always what they seem, especially in the small suburban town where the Carpenter family lives. Single suburban mother Susan Carpenter (Watts) works as a waitress at a diner, alongside feisty family friend Sheila (Silverman). Her younger son Peter (Tremblay) is a playful 8-year-old. Taking care of everyone and everything in his own unique way is Susan’s older son Henry (Lieberher), age 11. Protector to his adoring younger brother and tireless supporter of his often self-doubting mother – and, through investments, of the family as a whole – Henry blazes through the days like a comet. Susan discovers that the family next door, which includes Henry’s kind classmate Christina (Ziegler), has a dangerous secret – and that Henry has devised a surprising plan to help. As his brainstormed rescue plan for Christina takes shape in thrilling ways, Susan finds herself at the center of it.
