The Truth About Emanuel debuted at Sundance as Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes, but it’s changed its name ahead of its US release.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Emanuel (Kaya Scodelario), an acerbic but sensitive teen, is on the verge of another birthday—a day she has never cared for since her mother died giving birth to her—when the mysterious Linda (Jessica Biel), a young and hip mother, moves in next door. Intrigued by Linda’s striking resemblance to her late mother, Emanuel begins to babysit for Linda’s newborn daughter. As Emanuel and Linda spend more time together, they develop a bond that becomes deeply entwined in a surprising secret Linda harbors. Francesca Gregorini (Tanner Hall) writes and directs The Truth About Emanuel.’
It’ll be out in the US on iTunes and VOD on November 26th, 2013 and in select cinemas from January 10th, 2014.
