Ms. Moore will play Elizabeth Olsen‘s mom, Kate, in a supporting role in Very Good Girls. But Kate isn’t your ordinary mother. She’s a hippie who hasn’t changed her hair style—a long braid down the back—in decades, prefers that her children call her by her first name and believes in “free love,” a source exclusively tells me.
The indie, from first-time director Naomi Foner (AKA, Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal’s mom!), is about two best friends Gerry (Olsen) and Lilly (Dakota Fanning) in Brooklyn who want to lose their virginity.
Things get a bit complicated when both fall for the same boy, David, a manipulative guy played by Star Trek’s Anton Yelchin. The film is reportedly an update to the 1980 coming-of-age movie Little Darlings.
Rounding out the cast is Foner’s son-in-law, Peter Saarsgaard, as well as Dustin Hoffman and Sissy Spacek.
Filming is set to begin in a couple of weeks in New York City.
