There’s a first official poster for Please Stand By, the upcoming drama movie directed by Ben Lewin based on a script by Michael Golamco and starring Dakota Fanning, Toni Collette, and Alice Eve:
You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
A film by Ben Lewin.
“Wendy (Dakota Fanning) sees things differently: she’s fiercely independent, with a brilliant mind and a mischievous sense of hilarity. Wendy also has autism.
To her, people are an indecipherable code and the world’s a confusing place. She’s always had a hard time figuring it all out and she just wants a chance to be accepted…just like everybody else.
But inspired by no-nonsense carer Scottie (Toni Collette), Wendy comes of age and escapes from her care home on the road-trip of a lifetime to deliver her 500-page Star Trek script to a Hollywood competition.
Trailing chaos, with Scottie and her big sister Audrey (Alice Eve) in hurried pursuit, Wendy leads us on a captivating and heart-warming adventure; showing the bravery it takes to be your own person.
Please Stand By offers its actresses two standout performances and a career-defining role in Wendy.
A refreshing, bold and intimate journey that brings a unique human perspective to life.”
Dakota Fanning as an autistic Trekkie? Now that’s an original idea!
The film has yet to get an official release date.
