A few weeks ago, The Cultural Post indicated that Macha Grenon was attached to the upcoming film The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom. Now, some informations have surfaced about the identity of the other members of the cast.
Besides Macha Grenon (L'âge des ténèbres), Gil Bellows (Ally McBeal) and newcomer Julia Stone will join her to be the leading characters. While Grenon and Bellows will play a couple, Stone will play that couple's adoptive child.
In this film shot with a budget of $3 million, we're brought in 1976 in a suburb of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Elizabeth Alison Gray (Julia Stone) is an average girl of eleven years old. She finds out that her current mom, Marion (Macha Grenon), is her adoptive mom in actuality. While she lets herself being guided by a Ouija board, Elisabeth runs away from her house in order to find her real mom. Obviously, Marion will strive to find Elisabeth, but she'll have to eventually face the truth.
Other members of the cast include Rebecca Croll (The Business), Rebecca Windheim (Family Biz), Mung-Ling Tsui (The Bridge) and Trevor Hayes (The Phantom).
Finally, the film's production in Montreal will be over on May 1rst. Afterwards, the cast and crew will head to Winnipeg. Once there, The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom will resume its production for fourteen days.
