2012 promises to be a big year for Juno Temple. Not only does she have a role in
The Dark Knight Rises
, but she’s also bagged herself a healthy amount of hype surrounding her starring role in indie drama
A first trailer has gone online for the coming of age story, which tells the tale of a pair of teenage girls who shrug off the shackles of small-town boredom in favour of an exciting trip to Los Angeles.
Naturally, the big bad city turns out to be more than they had bargained for, and our two young heroines (played by Temple and Kay Panabaker) are left wondering whether they should have been in such a rush to grow up.
Take a look at the new trailer below...
The film initially premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, and looks to offer an intriguing update on a well-worn story. Temple’s performance in particular is said to be worth the price of admission alone, with support coming from more seasoned players in the form of Kate Bosworth and Leslie Mann.
Little Birds is currently pencilled in for a June release Stateside, with a UK date yet to be confirmed. You might not know her now, but by the end of the summer, Juno Temple should be well on her way to becoming a household name...
