Ever wondered what happened to that curly-haired kid who played Uma Thurman's daughter in Kill Bill? Well, apparently after growing up a bit more, Perla Haney-Jardine (aka Beatrix Kiddo and Bill's love child) has turned into quite an impressive little actress. Watch her go up against some heavy-hitting players (Amy Madigan, Lili Taylor and William Sadler) in this trailer for the new bittersweet indie drama "Future Weather," which will open in select theaters on February 22nd.
Written and directed by first-time feature filmmaker Jenny Deller, the drama centers on a lonely 13-year-old girl (Haney-Jardine) who, after getting abandoned by her deadbeat mother, is forced to live with her abusive and alcoholic grandmother (Madigan). Now facing a horrible new living arrangement, she passes the time burying herself in an ecological school project and becomes close to her nurturing science teacher (Taylor).
Lauduree (Perla Haney-Jardine) is a 13-year-old loner passionate about nature and worried about global warming. Greta (Amy Madigan), her grandmother, is a fiery nurse jaded by alcohol and disappointment. When Lauduree is abruptly abandoned by her dreamer single mom (Marin Ireland), she decides to take survival into her own hands, forcing her and Greta to rethink their futures.
