The Starling Girl

MKE Film Festival

Seventeen-year-old Jem Starling (Eliza Scanlen, LITTLE WOMEN) struggles with her place within her Christian fundamentalist community. Everything changes when her magnetic youth pastor Owen (TOP GUN: MAVERICK's Lewis Pullman), returns to their church. "The power of this sensitive and devilishly detailed coming-of-age drama is rooted in the friction that it finds between biblical paternalism and modern personhood." (IndieWire)
