Young actress Julia Sarah Stone took home the Rising Star Award for her performance in “Wet Bum” at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, and now Indiewire has the exclusive trailer for the film.
The synopsis reads: “It’s the start of the spring term in a small northern town, heralding swimming lessons, hanging out with best friends, new classes and new possibilities. But this year, things are different for 14-year-old Sam. While her friends are moving on, focusing on boys, experimenting with drugs, Sam is too uncomfortable to even take off her bathing suit in front of the other girls. After landing herself into trouble, she is forced to work as a cleaner at the retirement home run by her mother. Sam finds unexpected and unlikely friendships with two of the retirement home’s residents who end up teaching her a few things about growing up — and growing old.”
“Wet Bum” will premiere tonight at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Check out the trailer below:
