HBO has released the trailer for their upcoming film “The Tale” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to strong reviews.
Laura Dern stars as a fearless, 50-ish documentary filmmaker who faces life-altering questions when a short story she wrote for school at age 13 forces her to re-examine her first sexual relationship.
The story details how her horseback riding instructor (Elizabeth Debicki) and running coach (Jason Ritter) allegedly conspired to deflower her. The film explores the stories we tell ourselves in order to survive.
The true story tale is inspired by award-winning writer-director Jennifer Fox (“Beirut”) and also stars Ellen Burstyn, Common, Frances Conroy, John Heard and Isabelle Nelisse. The film premieres on HBO on May 26th.
