Principal photography is set to begin this October on the movie about a teenage girl who, despite difficult circumstances, is preternaturally optimistic about the world and her place in it. She often helps those around her, resulting in powerful bonds with a disparate group of outsiders in her community, until she faces a devastating loss and can no longer ignore the challenges in her own life. Additional casting is under way.
This will be Cravalho’s first non-animated movie. The actress most recently starred in NBC series Rise. Bryce Dallas Howard was previously aboard to direct but we hear had to drop off for scheduling reasons.
