“I like moving,” explains Sophie Nélisse as the titular Great Gilly Hopkins in a new trailer. “It’s boring to stay in one place. That way, I get to see more of the world.”
However, the feisty foster kid isn’t the most receptive at first to the home of Mamie Trotter (Kathy Bates) — which smells like it also houses a cat or two (though it doesn’t) — and she concocts a plan to lure her birth mother to her rescue.
Based on the Newbery Award-winning young-adult novel by Katherine Paterson (Bridge to Terabithia), the Great Gilly Hopkins adaptation also features Julia Stiles, Bill Cobbs, Billy Magnussen, Octavia Spencer and Glenn Close. Stephen Herek directs from a screenplay by David Paterson.
Lionsgate Premiere will release The Great Gilly Hopkins in theaters and on demand Oct. 7.
