Fanning, Farmiga Have A “Pure Life”

Elle Fanning, Vera Farmiga and Omari Hardwick have joined the cast of the indie drama “Pure Life” for GigaPix, Blue Raven Films and Manolin Entertainment reports The Playlist.

The story follows 13-year-old Maya Donovan (Fanning), who desperately wants a romance like the kind in the Brat Pack movies. Mired in poverty with her brutally hard-working and short-tempered mother Trisch (Farmiga), Maya goes looking for a teen romance and finds a bad boy she deems worthy of taking her virginity.

Melora Donoghue penned the script while Van Fischer (“Neo Ned”) will direct. Shooting aims to kick off this Spring.
