From Vertical Entertainment, the drama Pray for Rain hits theaters this Friday, June 16. The film follows a young New York journalist, played by Annabelle Stephenson, who returns to the idyllic Central California farming community where she was raised only to find it has been ravaged by drought and has become a place ruled by gangs, violent threats and greed. She is forced to investigate the suspicious circumstances of her father’s death even though it puts her in great danger. Her mother is played by talented actress Jane Seymour. Directed by Alex Ranavirelo. Written by Christina Moore and Gloria Musca.
I attended the red carpet last week in Hollywood (CA), and I talked to French director Alex Ranavirelo about why he picked actress Jane Seymour for the lead role. Jane was also present and talked about the elaborate script, what we can expect from the film and how it was to work with Annabelle Stephenson who plays her daughter in the plot. British actress Annabelle also commented on her character, the journalist Emma Gardner, her experience working with Jane and what we can expect from this drama. In addition to Jane and Annabelle, the film stars Nicholas Gonzalez, James Morrison, Ali Afshar, Paul Rodriguez, and others.
