Jack & Diane has a fairly long production history, which largely consists of various actresses such as Ellen Page and Olivia Thirlby attaching themselves to the title roles, before moving on. As a result it took a long time to get it in the can, but it was finally filmed last year with Riley Keough (who’s Elvis Presley granddaughter, incidentally) and Juno Temple in the lead roles.
Now the lesbian-themed fantasy drama film is set to gets its premiere, with the announcement (via The Playlist) that it’ll screen at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, which runs April 18th-29th.
The movie is about two teenage girls who meet in New York City and despite being very different, spark up a relationship. When Jack discovers that Diane is leaving the country in a week she tries to push her away. Diane struggles to keep their love alive while hiding the secret that her newly awakened sexual desire is giving her werewolf-like visions.
Jena Malone also stars, with Kyle Minogue popping up in the movie as a tattooed lesbian. Hopefully the movie will reach the UK later this year.
