Michelle Danner has pretty much done it all in her Hollywood career. Actress, acting coach, producer, and director of multiple films. Her biggest film yet arrives next month with the star-studded crime drama, Miranda’s Victim, based on the true story of one woman’s iconic fight for personal justice.
Abigail Breslin, Ryan Phillippe, Luke Wilson, Emily VanCamp, Mireille Enos, Taryn Manning, Sebastian Quinn, Kyle MacLachlan, Andy Garcia, Enrique Murciano, and Donald Sutherland star in the film that centers on Patricia “Trish” Weir, who was kidnapped and sexually assaulted in 1963 at the age of 18. Her attacker was captured and confessed, but when his confession is overturned two years later, Trish must stand up for herself once more.
Danner said, “This is a story about courage and justice. Within the court of law, it was a case of personal justice, but what makes it fascinating is that it ends up becoming iconic justice.”
Here’s the synopsis: Based on true events, in 1963 eighteen-year-old Trish Weir (Abigail Breslin) is kidnapped and sexually assaulted. Her assailant, Ernesto Miranda (Sebastian Quinn), confesses without legal representation and serves a two-year sentence, only to have the verdict later overturned. In the resulting retrial, a determined prosecutor (Luke Wilson) seeks to hold Ernesto accountable for his crimes, despite grueling opposition from Ernesto’s defense attorney (Ryan Phillippe). What follows is a legal proceeding that forever changes the nation’s justice system.
Miranda’s Victim hits select theaters and VOD on October 6th.
