HH client GEORGIE HENLEY has been causing quite a stir and receiving some excellent critic, industry and audience reviews this month for her stunning performance in The Sisterhood Of Night, a new independent feature from debut director Caryn Waechter.
The film follows the aftermath of a teenage girl claiming to be the victim of a secret sisterhood as a quiet suburban town becomes the backdrop for a modern-day Salem witch trial. A “self-styled ‘The Crucible’ for the cyberbullying era” (Variety) based on the short story by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Steven Millhauser, The Sisterhood of Night chronicles a group of girls’ provocative alternative to the loneliness of adolescence, along the way revealing the tragedy and humor of teenage years changed forever by the Internet age.
GEORGIE plays lead role Mary Warren, a strong-willed, mischief-minded high schooler who instigates the sisterhood. Variety magazine has praised both the film and GEORGIE‘s performance, stating: “But the one who really holds your attention is Henley, the remarkable 19-year-old British actress who made her big screen debut 10 years ago as Lucy Pevensie in “The Chronicles of Narnia” series; adorably earnest as she was then, she’s a quietly bewitching presence here, a performer who truly does seem to warrant her own cult-like following.” Check out the full review here.
The Sisterhood Of Night will be released in cinemas and VOD soon – watch this space! And in the meantime, check out the trailer below. Go GEORGIE!
