Please Stand By — Trailer


added: Mon, Dec 4th '17

Dakota Fanning dreams of writing for "Star Trek," so she takes an impetuous road trip to Los Angeles in the trailer for the coming-of-age dramedy "Please Stand By."

Fanning, who will next be seen in TNT's new serial-killer series "The Alienist," plays a young, high-functioning autistic woman whose only dream in life is to write an original "Star Trek" script. But when she learns of a "Star Trek"-themed writing competition in Hollywood, she seizes the moment and decides to travel down to the city for the first time. The problem is, she neglects to tell her therapist (played by Toni Collette) or her older sister (Alice Eve), which causes the both of them to panic.

Written by television writer Michael Golamco (NBC's Grimm), "Please Stand By" is directed by 71-year-old polio-stricken filmmaker Ben Lewin, who previously wrote and directed the acclaimed true-life drama "The Sessions" with John Hawkes and Helen Hunt.

Co-starring Jessica Rothe, Michael Stahl-David, Tony Revolori, and Robin Weigert with comedian Patton Oswalt as a Star Trek-obsessed police officer, the film will be arriving in theaters and VOD on January 26th.
