Directed by Paul Jarret
Starring Kiernan Shipka, Kara Hayward, Meg Ryan, Josh Boone, Nicole Coulon, and Beanie Feldstein and featuring indie punk band All Time Low
FAN GIRL introduces Telulah Farrow (Kiernan Shipka), a 15 year-old ironic cool girl who has two obsessions in life: pop punk music and making films. With just a few short days to come up with a killer final film project that could bring festival fame, Telulah gets a once in a lifetime chance to see her music idols ALL TIME LOW in concert. She hatches a plan to bring her passions together, accompanied by smart mouthed wing-girl Jamie (Kara Hayward), and underachieving, over-energetic film class partner Darvan (newcomer Joshua Boone).
FAN GIRL is the feature-directing debut of rising indie producer Paul Jarrett (THE MAID’S ROOM, WEAKNESS). This is the second feature from writer Gina O’Brien, whose Sundance premiere ONCE MORE WITH FEELING was produced by Jarrett. Prior to her screenwriting career, O’Brien was a journalist and magazine editor in New York City. The script for FAN GIRL was loosely based on experiences with her own teenage daughter.
FAN GIRL stars Kiernan Shipka (“Mad Men”), Kara Hayward (MOONRISE KINGDOM), Meg Ryan (SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE), Josh Boone, Nicole Coulon, and Beanie Feldstein. Directed by Paul Jarret. Written by Gina O’Brien. The film is executive produced by O’Brien and Jonathan Gray, and produced by Jarrett, Nick Huston, and Adam Spielberg in association with Rosetta Films, Filament Productions and Literally Films.
Pop punk band ALL TIME LOW appears in the film and provides much of the soundtrack. Not only does ALL TIME LOW have one of the largest paid fan club members online, with 10,000 members of the Hustler Club, they have an extremely effective social media presence, with more than 3.5 million Facebook likes, 3.5 million Twitter followers across five accounts, and 50,000 people discussing them on Facebook at any given time. They epitomize the new age of music with flat hierarchy social media communication, allowing them to be very personable and accessible to their fans.
