So, here it is, another Anna Paquin movie and, no doubt, another Sookie Stackhouse style accent, which she has done in almost every movie or television show she has ever been in. Anna Paquin will star in the movie Free Ride, which also sees the star producing the film.
Despite having Anna Paquin in it, Free Ride does actually seem to have an interesting story. Free Ride is the screenwriting and directorial debut of Shana Betz and the movie is based on true events from her own life. Anna has admitted that she is delighted to be on board with the project and loves to help promote new talent.
Cinema Blend quote Paquin as saying, "It’s always very exciting to discover talented writers and directors at the beginning of their careers. Based on the life story of Shana Betz, our writer-director, Free Ride tells an emotionally intense story of survival, and the lengths a mother will go to, to take care of her children"
As well as starring Anna Paquin, Free Ride also stars Cam Gigandet (Twilight), Drea de Matteo (Sons of Anarchy) and Brit Morgan (also of True Blood). Free Ride centres around a mother and her two children in the 1970s, who tries to provide a better life for her family in Florida, only to get dragged into the drugs trade. Shana Betz got the inspiration for the movie from her own childhood, with Anna Paquin playing the role of her mother.
Free Ride has a planned release for later in the year.
