Laura Dern and Ellen Burstyn are set to play mother and daughter alongside Elizabeth Debicki, Common, Jason Ritter, Frances Conroy and John Heard in Jennifer Fox’s “The Tale”.
The story centers on a successful journalist (Dern) whose mother finds a story she wrote at age 13 describing a sexual triangle with two adult coaches. Jennifer sets out to find the coaches, now forty years later.
As she delves deeper into her own mystery, the voice of her 13-year-old “Jenny” (played by Isabelle Nelisse) begins to surface and tell her side of the story. What Jenny reveals shatters everything Jennifer thought she knew about herself.
Fox penned and will direct the feature which Lawrence Inglee, Laura Rister, Oren Moverman, Fox, Sol Bondy, Simone Pero, Mynette Louie and Regina K. Scully will produce.
