Story of a Girl 

click to enlarge sl_story-of-a-girl.jpg

In Kyra Sedgwick's directorial debut, the life of 13-year-old Deanna is forever changed when a video of her having sex with her older brother's friend goes viral. Three years later, Deanna continues to deal with slut-shaming and a tarnished reputation. Her homelife is no escape. Her brother and his girlfriend Stacy (played by Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon's daughter, Sosie Bacon) live in the basement with their baby. Her father hasn't been able to look her in the eye since watching the video. Desperate to save enough money to get out of her small Oregon town as soon as possible, Deanna lands a job at a run-of-the-mill pizza place owned by Kevin Bacon. Story of a Girl is a nostalgic coming-of-age-story for the digital age. Woodstock Film Festival will present a special screening of Story of a Girl at Upstate Films in Woodstock on July 15 at 2pm. After the showing, Kyra Sedgwick will hold a Q&A. Tickets: $10. Story of a Girl premieres on Lifetime on July 23. Woodstockfilmfestival.com.
