Heading to Sundance next week is Sydney Freeland’s coming-of-age dramedy “Deidra & Laney Rob a Train,” starring newcomers Ashleigh Murray and Rachel Crow

The movie follows Deidra, a whip-smart high school senior, and her younger sister Laney who, after their mother Marigold (Danielle Nicolet) is thrown in jail for a minor offense, hatch a plan to rob trains to get money and support their family. Things seem to be working out for them until a railroad detective (Tim Blake Nelson) starts sniffing around.

Written by Shelby Farrell, “Deidra & Laney Rob a Train” also co-stars Sasheer Zamata, David Sullivan, Missi Pyle, Arturo Castro, Brooke Markham and Sharon Lawrence.
