‘Little Woods’ Trailer: Tessa Thompson, Lily James Star in Small Town Drama
Pills for Bills
NEON released a new trailer for “Little Woods” this week, the film is scheduled to hit theaters in April and stars Tessa Thompson, Lily James, Luke Kirby, James Badge Dale, and Lance Reddick. Nia DaCosta wrote and directed the film, which will officially release on April 19th.
The story takes place in Little Woods, North Dakota. The town is a fracking boomtown well beyond its prime. Ollie (Thompson) is trying to survive the last few days of her probation after getting caught illegally running prescription pills over the Canadian border. After Ollie’s mother dies, she is forced back into the life of her estranged sister Deb (James), who is facing her own crisis with an unplanned pregnancy and a deadbeat ex.
The two find they have one week to settle the mortgage on their mother’s house or face foreclosure. As bills and pressure mount, Ollie faces a choice: whether to return to a way of life she thought she’d left behind for just one more score or to leave it all behind. Fans of the two actors can watch the official trailer below.
Tessa Thompson and Lily James have been very busy over the last few years. Thompson will star in “Men in Black: International” this summer, teaming up once again with her “Thor: Ragnarok” co-star Chris Hemsworth.

Here We Go Again,” the actor is also playing Mrs. de Winter in the Ben Wheatley remake of “Rebecca.”
