Director: Jake Scott
Jake Scott - son of Ridley Scott (Alien), nephew of Tony (True Romance) - propagates the family filmmaking gene with this new take on the chivalry-for-the-destitute theme.
Doug (James Gandolfini) searches outside his marriage for sexual fulfilment following the death of his teenage daughter and the refusal of his wife (Melissa Leo) to leave the house. At a strip club in New Orleans, he finds Mallory (Kristen Stewart, admirably shaking off the constraints of her Twilight role) who looks remarkably like his deceased daughter. Striking up a platonic relationship with Mallory, he attempts to offer her a brighter future.
