DIRTY GIRL – SYNOPSIS

DIRTY GIRL is the story of Danielle (Juno Temple), the dirty girl of Norman High School in Norman, Oklahoma, circa 1987. When Danielle’s misbehavior gets her banished to a remedial class, she is paired on a parenting project with Clarke (Jeremy Dozier), an innocent closet-case with no friends. Danielle is determined to get to California to find the father she’s never met, and Clarke is desperate to escape being sent to military school by his homophobic dad. Together, the mismatched misfits light out for California, and discover each other and themselves through a funny and serendipitous friendship.




DIRTY GIRL – DIRECTOR STATEMENT FROM ABE SYLVIA

“It’s 1986 and I am standing in the quad at Whittier Middle School in Norman, Oklahoma. I am overweight, closeted, and harboring secret dreams of maybe, one day, becoming a dancer. I had big dreams for myself, but back then, I was doing my best not to be noticed, waiting for the holy horror of lunch period to end. When a tornado touched down in the form of “Dirty Debbie”.


Debbie was 16 and still in the seventh grade. In the words of Joan Jett she didn’t “give a damn” about her “Bad Reputation”, so much so, that at that very moment she was literally streaking across the quad with her shirt completely open, her ample rack bouncing for everyone to see. She was grinning from ear to ear and laughing like a deranged hyena. I do not know how Debbie found herself in this situation. Was she fleeing a groping boy? Taking someone up on a dare? Or, in that moment, did she decide this place was too boring and she was going to shake things up a bit?
Whatever it was, Debbie was thoroughly enjoying herself… unlike the rest of us. She liked being that girl. In this town where boys like me were discouraged from being our true selves, there was Debbie, the epitome of reckless abandon. She was debased, but evolved; undeniably broken, yet somehow complete… and I loved her. I have no idea what became of Dirty Debbie, but I hope she is happy, and I hope she likes the movie I made about our imaginary friendship.”
DIRTY GIRL – PRODUCER STATEMENT FROM ROB PARIS
“It was almost exactly five years ago that Abe Sylvia first walked through my door. In truth I was reluctant to take the meeting. Unknown writer? Please, I was far too important for that. And that name?! I saw visions of an old Jewish couple, arguing over sunsets in Boca. But the manager would not stop calling. And calling. So as a purely defensive act, I set the meeting. And in the grand tradition of Hollywood development executives, I didn't read his script until the night before the meeting - and even then assumed I'd look at twenty or so pages and be done. He'd come in, I'd hand him a tepid bottle of Arrowhead water and soon it would all be over.
My fantasies of a quick and efficient dismissal began to erode as I found myself devouring page after page of the script, laughing and crying in nearly equal measure as I arrived at the triumphant finish. Damn. Now what would I do? This nebbishy retired couple of a writer was on his way! I was screwed, so I braced myself for inevitable disappointment.
Then through my door walked a tall, handsome actor-looking type. Clearly he was a messenger, making a few bucks between auditions. "Hello. I'm Abe." Damn. Within minutes I could tell he was a director. It was undeniable. Ten years as a dancer and choreographer on Broadway had given him poise and confidence and had groomed him for the rigors of directing a feature film.
So, every journey begins with a first step. We shook hands that day and agreed that we would make this film. Over five years, four different financiers, twelve different budgets, twenty different actors and finally twenty five disparate locations, spread over the more picturesque enclaves of Los Angeles doubling for Oklahoma, we have a film.
I am immensely proud of this film and incredibly grateful for being given the opportunity to be a part of it.”

DIRTY GIRL – THE MUSIC
Abe Sylvia: “Music is the unifying device that instantly connects an audience to a character. So maybe you don’t know what it is like to be a mousey wife living in fear of an overbearing husband in 1980’s Oklahoma, but every single one of us has been carried away by BowWowWow’s I Want Candy. Perhaps you do not know the words to Teena Marie’s Lovegirl, but we have all had impromptu sing-alongs with our best friend in the car (if you haven’t, I am very sorry, as it is one of life’s greatest pleasures).
Hopefully you will feel the surge that Joel the stripper feels when he hears the opening phrase of The Outfield’s Your Love – a surge so powerful that it compels him to dance. I’m with Joel; you can’t NOT dance when you hear “Josie’s on a vacation far away…”
But the musical muse of DIRTY GIRL is Melissa Manchester. She is Clarke’s guiding light, his rock. Melissa’s music is what allows him to face each day anew with hope in his heart that maybe, as Joel says, “it ain’t all shit.” The depth and breadth of her body of work has made it possible to score Clarke’s biggest emotional moments in colorful, exciting, unexpected ways. Midnight Blue, a song for lovers, plays as Clarke has his first private moment alone doing homework with Danielle. He tries unsuccessfully to create a romantic mood with Through The Eyes of Love. And perhaps, most beautifully, Melissa’s very personal song about her grandmother Jenny scores a scene in which Clarke, Joel and Danielle swap stories about how they have never experienced the kind of parental affection that Melissa so warmly sings about.
And when Danielle is left all alone on her journey, Clarke sends Melissa Manchester to her with a new song, Rainbird (co-written with Mary Steenburgen especially for the film), to encourage her to follow her dream and to not give up her heart’s greatest desire. Melissa’s voice is what assures Danielle that love will indeed “come to you.”
We finish the film with three Melissa Manchester songs back to back. Her classic Don’t Cry Out Loud performed by Clarke and Danielle (with Melissa at the piano if you look closely) followed by a cover of Whenever I Call You Friend (co-written by Melissa and Kenny Loggins) by the sensational Fyfe Dangerfield and Inara George. Then for our end crawl Melissa takes us home with Still Myself - a song from her most recent album. Melissa sent me this song while we were in the throes of editing – and as soon as I heard it I realized it so beautifully resonated with what each of the characters had come to understand about life. And how perfect is it that a film that celebrates what a vital musical artist she has been to us over the years, ends with a new song that shows what a vital musical force she continues to be.
From Only You to Delta Dawn to Elvira to The Life by Wendy and Lisa, I have endeavored to use songs that we have stored in our collective consciousness to draw you in, envelop you in nostalgia, and hopefully have you feel them in new and exciting ways. And if you are hearing these songs for the first time, I am happy to be the DJ bringing them to your attention, and am humbled that your association with them begins with DIRTY GIRL.”

DIRTY GIRL - CAST BIOGRAPHIES
Juno Temple (Danielle)
Juno Temple first gained prominence with small but memorable roles in ATONEMENT, NOTES ON A SCANDAL and THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL. She followed these by branching out into comedy with the UK smash hit ST TRINIAN’S. Since then her star has continued to rise with a leading role in Jordan Scott's CRACKS and starring alongside Michael Cera in YEAR ONE. Next year, as well as playing the title role of Danielle in DIRTY GIRL she will be in seen in Summit Entertainment and Constantin Films’ THE THREE MUSKETEERS.
Juno Temple, “I absolutely adored the script, in fact I couldn’t put it down. It evoked such a flurry of emotions in me and I thought that Danielle was such an extraordinary creature - and a challenging role - that I became desperate to play her. Also the cast; there was such an incredible group of people attached to this project and after meeting and auditioning with Abe I knew that I really wanted to be a part of DIRTY GIRL. It was truly unlike anything I had ever read before.”

Abe Sylvia: “Juno Temple is, quite simply, the real deal: true movie star, the perfect combination of instinct, skill and charisma. She completely owns every frame she graces.”


Milla Jovovich: "She's a dream come true and one of the most talented young actors in our industry today. I'm so proud we made this movie together and we're working together again on THE THREE MUSKETEERS.”
Jeremy Dozier: “I loved working with Juno. I don’t think anyone else could have the done the part justice like she did, she just oozes talent. She can achieve things on film that blow my mind. We clicked immediately and became best friends before filming even started, so the chemistry between the two characters was already there. We’d get on set and just play.”
Mary Steenburgen: “On the first day I worked with Juno, I did my last scene in the film which is a scene where she talks to me about how I’m not really being there for my son.  I loved every second and knew immediately she could go a very long way.”
Tim McGraw: “The sky is the limit for Juno Temple. I loved working with her.”

Jeremy Dozier (Clarke)
Jeremy Dozier had never had a major role before being cast in DIRTY GIRL. The search for Clarke had been extensive and not an easy one, with the actor needing to display a particular versatility in their acting as the character emerges from his shell. Plus he needed some killer dance moves. After Abe Sylvia had screen tested Jeremy he pulled out the leg warmers and put him through his paces in a dance studio to see what he was made of. The results were quite simply....dazzling. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Jeremy Dozier: “What fascinates me most about Clarke is his inner strength. Despite coming from an abusive household and being tormented at school, Clarke is still a grounded, funny, charming, intelligent, loving person. It takes an enormous amount of strength to be able to hold onto those parts of yourself in that kind of environment. A weaker person would have literally had them beaten out of them.”
Abe Sylvia: “We met Jeremy Dozier when he sent in a homemade audition tape shot in his college dorm at the University of Texas. He approached the role of Clarke with such clarity of purpose that in almost every instance he hit the performance on the first take; every director’s dream when working on such a tight schedule”
Juno Temple: “Jeremy has become one of my closest friends for life. We had such an amazing time working together. I think he is sensational. He made it so easy and made me feel so safe in each scene that we forgot cameras were rolling! He brought Clarke to life in such an extraordinary way, and it was so honest, I learned a lot from him and would love to work with him again. Such a great friendship blossomed out of us playing these characters together and I really think that comes through on screen. Jeremy is going to blow peoples’ minds, I’m sure of it, he already blew mine!”

Mary Steenburgen: “Jeremy was so immersed in his part that working with him was effortless.  I think he probably understood the character deeply from the inside and he worked so hard to handle the dance scenes.  He was like a bright, sweet light and I loved playing his mom.”



Milla Jovovich (Sue-Ann)
Milla Jovovich is a Ukrainian-born actress, supermodel, fashion designer and singer who has graced the cover of more than a hundred magazines. Since focusing on acting she has starred in such films as THE FIFTH ELEMENT, ZOOLANDER, THE PERFECT VACATION and the hugely successful RESIDENT EVIL franchise. In DIRTY GIRL she plays Danielle’s hopeless “reformed slut” mother Sue-Ann.
Milla Jovovich: “It’s been one of the most enjoyable productions I've ever been a part of and a real honor that Abe Sylvia would consider me for a comedic role alongside this very talented and well respected ensemble cast. I had the time of my life. My character was very different from anything I have ever played. An Oklahoma accent was a real challenge. She's a really quirky, innocent, dumbbell with a good heart and best of intentions. She has no idea how to raise a child. By the end of the story, the way she re-connects with her daughter was very inspiring."
Abe Sylvia: “Milla brought incredible wit and warmth to Sue-Ann. I believe her performance is the key to the audience’s ability to navigate the shift between humor and pathos in the film. She brought a confident lightness of touch to her comedic scenes and resilient clarity to her emotionally heavy scenes. And she was beloved by the crew; which is a real testament to her personal character.”

William H. Macy (Ray)
Perhaps best known for his Academy Award ® nominated role in FARGO, William H. Macy has forged a career as an actor who moves effortlessly between top tier independent movies and studio tent poles. Forging strong relationships with directors P.T. Anderson and David Mamet with whom he made BOOGIE NIGHTS, MAGNOLIA and THE HOUSE OF GAME, he has also starred in WILD HOGS, JURASSIC PARK III and AIR FORCE ONE amongst many others. Macy stars as Sue-Ann's easily shock-able Mormon fiancé, Ray.
Abe Sylvia: “He is indisputably one of the finest American actors. A true pro and staunch advocate for his character, he brings out the best in everyone. Every day I was pinching myself that one of my heroes was in my movie.”

Mary Steenburgen (Peggy)
Since being discovered on the Paramount lot by Jack Nicholson in 1978, Mary Steenburgen has spent over 20 years dazzling audiences in over fifty films. As well as winning an Academy Award ® for her role in MELVIN AND HOWARD she has starred in films such as BACK TO THE FUTURE III, PARENTHOOD, PHILADELPHIA and NIXON. In recent years she has excelled in comedies including ELF, STEP BROTHERS and 2009's smash hit THE PROPOSAL alongside Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. Mary stars as Clarke’s mousey mother, Peggy.
Mary Steenburgen: “I absolutely loved the script for DIRTY GIRL.  I was also very impressed with the incredible cast that like myself, were drawn to the project.”
Abe Sylvia: “I was struck by the specificity and thoughtfulness of her performance. She lovingly nicknamed her character “Poor Peggy” – a tribute to the offbeat sympathy she had for her character. I was thrilled to work with Mary as both an actress and songwriter as she subsequently wrote the original song ‘Rainbird’ with Melissa Manchester for the film. How it thrilled me that the two most important women in Clarke’s life, his mother and Melissa Manchester, wrote this haunting lullaby for his girl, Danielle.”

Dwight Yoakam ( Joseph)
Dwight Yoakam is an American singer-songwriter, actor and film director, most famous for his pioneering country music. He has sold more than 25 million records. Yoakam has also carved out a niche as one of the most mesmerizing and respected actors working today, most notably in his critically acclaimed performances as an abusive alcoholic in SLING BLADE, as a sociopathic killer in PANIC ROOM and as the Sheriff in THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUIADES ESTRADA. Dwight stars as Joseph, Clarke's homophobic father.
Abe Sylvia: “Ingenious and intense in all the best ways, Dwight really got into Joseph’s head. A true artist, Dwight is a thrillingly inventive collaborator who delighted in finding new and better ways to flesh out Joseph’s character. I adore this man – he pushes himself to higher and better heights with every take.”

Tim McGraw (Danny Briggs)
Tim McGraw is an American country singer and actor. He has sold over 40 million albums in his singing career. In recent years McGraw has expanded into acting, with supporting roles in Academy Award ® winning smash hit THE BLIND SIDE, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, THE KINGDOM and FOUR CHRISTMASES with Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon. In DIRTY GIRL, he plays Danielle’s estranged father Danny.
Abe Sylvia: “Tim brought an incredibly nuanced and finely shaded sensitivity to his performance. He plays a deceptively complex character in DIRTY GIRL and I appreciated the focus he brought to the set. Tim had a clear vision of who this guy was and gave a performance that was pitch perfect. He was my dream choice for this role and I was over the moon when he said yes.”

Nicholas d’Agosto (Joel)
Nicholas was discovered by Alexander Payne in the high school where he filmed ELECTION. Other films include ROCKET SCIENCE and FIRED UP, but he is probably best known as “West” from TV series Heroes.

Juno Temple: “Working with Abe was magical; I just trusted him with my life which meant that I could completely let go and engross myself in this wonderful character he had created. He has such a vision and each moment is already alive in his imagination. It was thrilling to work with a director that is so involved with every aspect of the film (Abe even found and bought some of my costumes). He has got such wonderful things ahead of him and I am so honored and thankful that he believed in me for DIRTY GIRL. I really really hope that I get the opportunity to work with him again, we had the time of our lives!”

Mary Steenburgen: “Abe Sylvia was born to direct.  He had a clear vision about every single aspect of this film from the production design to the costumes and my hilarious hair-do.  He also is the kind of director that makes an actor want to walk through fire for him.  I’d love to work with him again.”


Jeremy Dozier: “Working with Abe was a dream. His amazing vision and creativity excited everyone on set. I think everyone knew that Abe was something special and because of that knew this project was going to be something special.”
