“Don’t worry, we’ll take care of you.” Cleopatra Entertainment has debuted the official US trailer for quirky British coming-of-age drama Pin Cushion, a film about a mother and daughter drifting apart. This is the feature debut of an award-winning shorts filmmaker named Deborah Haywood, and it first premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year. Lily Newmark (also seen in Juliet, Naked and Solo: A Star Wars Story) stars as a young girl raised by her strict, very close, kooky but loving mother. She reaches a point where she feels the need to go out and make new friends, but in the process everything starts to fall apart. Joanna Scanlan stars as her mother, and the cast includes Loris Scarpa and Sacha Cordy-Nice. I saw this film in Venice last year and it’s very weird yet oddly endearing, but a bit too dark and melodramatic for my taste.
