Sydney Freeland, the director of the Emmy-nominated web series "Her Story" and the writer and director of the 2014 Sundance-selected film "Drunktown's Finest," is returning to Park City this month to debut her new Netflix movie "Deidra & Laney Rob a Train," which has received its first trailer.
Centering on two precocious teenage sisters who decide to steal from local freight trains to support their financially struggling family, this light-hearted film stars up-and-comer Ashleigh Murray (who will also be seen as Josie of "Josie and the Pussycats" in the upcoming CW Archie series "Riverdale") and singer-and-former Nickelodeon star Rachel Crow (who got her first break during the first season of the singing competition show "The X Factor").
The movie also stars Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?) as a Pacific Railroad detective assigned to investigate the girls' well-planned-out break-ins. Other cast members include David Sullivan (Flaked), Danielle Nicolet (Central Intelligence), Missi Pyle (Gone Girl), and SNL comedienne Sasheer Zamata.
"Deidra & Laney Rob a Train" will premiere at Sundance next week before being released on Netflix on Friday, March 17th.
Two teenage sisters start robbing trains to make ends meet after their single mother's emotional meltdown in an electronics store lands her in jail.
