AMERICAN FABLE is a fairytale thriller set in the 1980s Midwest farm crisis about a courageous girl living in a dark and sometimes magical world. When 11-year-old Gitty discovers that her beloved father is hiding a wealthy man in her family's silo in order to save their struggling farm, she befriends the captive in secret and is forced to choose between saving the man's life and protecting her family from the consequences of their actions.
AMERICAN FABLE was one of the best experiences of my life. We filmed AMERICAN FABLE for six weeks in rural Illinois, and it was amazing. I can’t thank the writer/director, Anne Hamilton, enough for trusting me to be the lead in her debut feature. I really loved playing the lead in AMERICAN FABLE because there were many challenging and intense scenes. I was so ecstatic when I found out that AMERICAN FABLE was going to have its world premiere at South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW)! This festival celebrates innovation and emerging talent both behind and in front of the camera.
AMERICAN FABLE opened to a full house on Sunday, March 13, and it was so rewarding to finally see the beautiful finished product. The critics loved it and, because of the buzz, the other three showings at SXSW were sold out and people even had to be turned away. The director, the producer Kishori Rajan, and fellow cast members in attendance – Richard Schiff, Gavin MacIntosh, Rusty Schwimmer and Marci Miller – spent three days being interviewed by media. I loved being able to promote a film I am so incredibly proud of.
