Project Summary

We are casting an independent feature film that needs young actors (18 and over) who look high-school aged. Please read the project details and submit via the link below if you are interested!

CLEMENTINE is a feature film that simply and cinematically explores the cyclical nature of relationships and a rarely seen Lolita-like dynamic between two women. Equal parts psychological drama and sexual coming-of-age story, Clementine is a tense rumination on who to love and how to let go.

SYNOPSIS

Unable to let go of her failing relationship with an older and more successful woman, KAREN, 29, stows away to her estranged lover’s lake house in a remote and beautiful forest in the Pacific Northwest. Here she meets LANA, a provocative young girl of indeterminate age, hell-bent on moving to California, and cultivating an identity that lives up to her expectations of the world outside of her shitty little town. Lana’s yarns captivate Karen as Karen tries to figure out who she is and who she’ll become outside of an all-consuming relationship. The narrative follows the development of Lana and Karen’s complex attachment. As Karen grapples with her past and expectations for the future, her relationship with Lana oscillates between that of friends, mother/daughter, sisters, lovers, beholder and beheld. The film aspires to simply but cinematically explore the cyclical nature of relationships as well as a rarely seen Lolita-like dynamic between two women. Equal parts psychological drama and sexual coming-of-age story, Clementine is a tense rumination on who to love and how to let go.

 

CHARACTER SPECS

LANA CHARACTER SUMMARY: Lana is hell-bent on getting to California,becoming a famous actress, and cultivating an identity that lives up to her expectations of an interesting and exciting life outside of the confines of her shitty little town. Lana has just started to understand the power her sexuality holds over men, but Karen, an older, more sophisticated woman from LA, poses a new challenge that goes beyond simple seductions. Lana begins to experiment with increasingly elaborate yarns to earn Karen’s affection while also hoping to prove her worth as an actress. Soon Lana’s concept of reality and fantasy begin to converge and true feelings and hurt are revealed. Suddenly, being a teenager doesn’t seem so bad.
