*Academy Award winning actress Mira Sorvino is speaking about her latest role in a captivating new film, “Like Dandelion Dust,” about faith, love, and forgiveness. The actress says she found faith in the story of a mother who gave her child up for adoption but has decided to try and get him back.
Sorvino describes the film, which is “about two families who were at war with each other over one child,” as both beautiful and heart-wrenching, but also an examination of faith.
“The faith element of it [was] definitely strengthened for me even as I was shooting it because I felt like the character sort of needed redemption – needed forgiveness – not only from people in the film, but from God for what she considered to be a horrendous thing that she’d done, which was give up her own child,” the actress said.
The film also stars Barry Pepper, Cole Hauser, Kate Levering, and Maxwell Perry Cotton and is directed by Jon Gunn. It is rated PG-13 for mature thematic material including domestic violence and alcohol abuse. It will be playing in select theaters Sept. 24.
