The other ‘Girl’ enters awards fray

GirlBNot to be confused with HBO’s “The Girl” — but good luck with that — David Riker feature film “The Girl” is making an awards qualifying run in New York and Los Angeles beginning Dec. 14, before its wide release in March. Brainstorm Media is distributing.

This “Girl” intends to campaign in categories including picture, director, original screenplay (also by Riker), lead actress (Abbie Cornish) and supporting actor (Will Patton). Here’s the logline:

Struggling with the loss of her child to Social Services, a single
mother is trapped in the quicksand of her south Texas life, unwilling to accept
the consequences of her actions. When her past collides with a young child from
Mexico, she begins a journey that will change her life — teaching her that she
is the architect of her own fate and learning what it is that truly defines
home.
