Social media influencer Larsen Thompson, who has already made her mark as a top model and dancer, makes her film acting debut in the poignant new family drama Pearl, set for release Aug. 11 by Quiver Distribution.
Directed and written by Bobby Roth (“Prison Break,” “Hawaii 5-0,” “Jack the Dog”), and produced by Jeffrey White (“King Kong: Peter Jackson’s Production Diaries”, “Beverly Hills, 90210”, “The Christmas Star”) .
Pearl is a story for today, and timeless as well. Larsen Thompson plays the title character, a smart 16-year-old girl, grieving the sudden death of her mother, who moves in with Jack (Anthony LaPaglia), the dead-inside father she never knew. Both resist their new kinship, but find salvation in the beautiful odyssey of learning to love one another.
Pearl will be available for purchase or rental on a variety of VOD platforms, notably iTunes and Amazon Prime, along with Vudu, Fandango Now, Comcast, Cox, Spectrum, Redbox and more to be added soon. It will have its digital theatrical release on August 14 on Laemmle Virtual Cinema.
LaPaglia’s credits include “Annabelle: Creation,” “Without a Trace,” Roth’s “Jack the Dog” and numerous other film and television credits. Also in the Pearl cast are Sarah Carter (“The Vow,” “Rogue,” “Falling Skies”), Barbara Williams (“White House Down,” “Another Life,” “Rookie Blue”), Nestor Carbonell (“The Dark Knight” series, “The Morning Show”), Melissa Macedo (“Girl Boss,” “One Day”), J. August Richards (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”) and more.
