The Gist: This explores the unlikely friendship between Jane (Dree Hemingway), a twenty-one year old free spirit, and Sadie (Besedka Johnson) an eighty-five year old recluse – both living in the San Fernando Valley…(more)

List Worthy Reasons…: His cinema-verité styled aesthetic demonstrated in 2004’s Take Out and more recently, the well-traveled Prince of Broadway (2009) makes Sean Baker’s POV better than Google’s streetview. When it comes to detailing the microcosms, his docu-treament will most certainly aid in detailing one young adults journey into the seedy world of porn. Could be a break-out role for Dree Hemingway (yes that family).
Release Date/Status?: Currently in the editing stages, this should be ready midway in 2012 allowing for a wealth of film festival possibilities.
