Check out the new trailer to the critically acclaimed film which had its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival followed by a successful theatrical run, the taut directorial debut from
Rose McGowan, DAWN, which will debut June 21st only on Youtube.
Realizing that her passion lies in filmmaking, Rose McGowan's
breakthrough directorial debut, DAWN, is a disturbing tale of a young girl's budding sexuality and one's desire to experience the unknown. Dawn (Tara Barr) is a quiet young teenager living in Kennedy era America who longs for something or someone to free her from her sheltered life. When she strikes up an innocent flirtation with the boy who works at her local gas station (Reiley McClendon), she thinks that he is perhaps the answer to her teenage dreams. Though when she invites the boy and his friends into her otherwise cloistered world, she gets a lot more than she bargained for.
