“Little Sister” begins with a Marilyn Manson quote and Ally Sheedy smoking weed. Be still, your beating emo-teen heart.
The Huffington Post is debuting the poster for Zach Clark’s new film, which opens in New York and premieres on VOD platforms Oct. 14. A bittersweet comedy about Colleen Lunsford, a former goth girl who skips town to become a nun, “Little Sister” makes a star out of Addison Timlin (”Californication,” “That Awkward Moment”), who has a Rooney Mara-esque quality in the movie. Sheedy plays her mother, summoning Colleen home after her brother returns from the Iraq War a burn victim. Their dysfunctional North Carolina family must wade through years of resentments, forging an attempt to find harmony.
The poster is illustrated by Akiko Stehrenberger, who has designed one-sheets for “It Follows,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “The One I Love,” among others. Set against the backdrop of the 2008 election, “Little Sister” ― as its poster shows ― encapsulates America’s conflicting ideals, some of which play out in Colleen as she revisits her childhood and configures her new life.
