After its world premier at the Vancouver International Film Festival
last week, director Wei Ling Chang's first feature film The Unlikely Girl
is set to have a US premier at the Woodstock Film Festival
in Woodstock, NY.
Shot entirely on location in France, the film is a tricky, taut and subtly sexy thriller - think (a refreshingly far less clichéd) Wild Things
by way of Swimming Pool
The film stars Hande Kodja and Pierre Boulanger, and marks the feature film debut of Shane Lynch (90210
), the daughter of actress Kelly Lynch.

This suspenseful film noir(ish) will be having its final screening at VIFF on October 11, and can be seen at the Woodstock Film Fest on October 12 and 13.
After a racy encounter with a stranger on a train,
the beautiful Cécile (Hande Kodja) arrives at a family vacation house in
the south of France to unwind. When she travels into town, she runs
into an old childhood crush, Luc (Pierre Boulanger),
who can't believe that it's really her after all of these years. As
they begin to rekindle their intense longing for each other, they are
surprised by the arrival of an American college exchange student, Jamie
Cecile is initially annoyed by Jamie's intrusion
but then in an unlikely turn, they bond as Jamie uncovers a dark truth
about Cécile's childhood. Soon even Cécile encourages Jamie to take Luc
for herself. When Cécile's brother, Matthieu,
mysteriously shows up at the house things take another unexpected turn
as each has a very different version of their childhood. Someone is
lying - Cecile? Matthieu? Luc? Or maybe they all are.
