Little Woods

Little Woods

Crime/Drama | USA | Queensland Premiere

Tessa Thompson (Westworld, Thor: Ragnarok) is as electrifying as Ollie, an ex-con with just a few days left on her parole. Ollie, and her estranged sister Deb (Lily James), are swiftly sucked back into a life of crime after their mother passes away leaving them with insurmountable debts that bring them to the precipice of homelessness.

First-time filmmaker Nia DaCosta crafts a profoundly modern western, presenting a riveting indictment of an American society that traps women into cycles of crime and poverty. Little Woods is an emotionally charged, and timely, crime-thriller marking DaCosta as a young American indie filmmaker to watch.
