"The Girl" Turns the Immigrant Story Upside Down


Starring Abbie Cornish, Will Patton, and introducing Maritza Santiago Hernandez. From David Riker, the director of "La Ciudad", and Paul Mezey, the producer of Oscar-nominated films "Maria Full of Grace" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild", comes a new film "The Girl".

Abbie Cornish plays Ashley, a young single mom struggling with the loss of her child to Social Services, unwilling to accept the consequences of her actions and trapped in the quicksand of her south Texas life.

When Ashley's path collides with Rosa (Maritza Santiago Hernandez), a strong-minded girl who has lost her mother while crossing the Rio Grande, she unwittingly begins a journey that will change her life forever.

Starting in a big box store in Texas and ending in a small village in southern Mexico, "The Girl" turns the immigrant story upside down, questioning the myth of the American Dream and asks that we consider the possibility of a better life -- south of the border.

"The Girl" is showing at the following theaters starting March 15:

Sundance Sunset Cinema
8000 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA

AMC Loews Broadway 4
1441 Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica, CA
