After 30 years of producing movies and television shows, Stanley M. Brooks finally makes his directorial debut with Perfect Sisters. Based on a true story, it stars Georgie Henley and Abigail Breslin as Beth and Sandra, two sisters who are as close as siblings can be. We soon learn that their bond is so strong because their mother, Linda (Mira Sorvino), is an alcoholic who keeps falling off the wagon and constantly gets involved with the wrong men, which forces both of the girls to grow up a lot sooner than any child should.
When Linda gets involved with an incredibly abusive man, Beth and Sandra start thinking that maybe she would be better off dead. While the idea starts off as a harmless fantasy of killing their mother, it soon turns into a real life nightmare that shocks an entire community.
At the recent LA press day for Perfect Sisters, I landed an exclusive interview with Henley, best known for her role as Lucy Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia movies, and Brooks. They spoke about the difficulties of adapting this particular story, the fantastic chemistry that Henley had with Breslin, when they first heard of the story that the film is based on and much more.
