The undeniably brilliant, Sadie Sink, who recently stunned audiences with her excellent performance in the latest season of Stranger Things, gives another awe-inspiring, powerful turn as the lead in brand-new film Dear Zoe. This heart–wrenching, endearing and compelling coming-of-age drama is set to receive its UK premiere this November, courtesy of Reel 2 Reel Films.

Sadie excels as an adolescent dealing with grief, pain, and relationships in this enthralling coming-of-age drama.  Tackling the obstacles life has thrown at her, the sometimes savvy and at other times na├»ve teen faces her challenges head-on with a compassionate, world-weary, funny, and heartbreakingly honest teen perspective.

Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Philip Beard, and written and adapted by Marc Lhormer, who is joint producer with Brenda Lhormer (Bottle Shock), this absorbing and refreshing feature from director Gren Wells(The Road Within, A Little Bit of Heaven) features an impressive line-up of talent, including Justin Bartha (The Hangover, National Treasure), rising-star Vivien Lyra Blair (Obi-Wan Kenobi, Bird Box), Theo Rossi (Army of the Dead, Story, Sons of Anarchy), and Jessica Capshaw (Holidate, Grey’s Anatomy).

When Tess (Sadie Sink – The Whale) and her family suffer an unimaginable loss during a seismic historical event that changed the world forever, she finds support from a surprising source: her biological father, Nick (Theo Rossi) – a lovable slacker from the wrong side of the tracks.

Grief-stricken and guilt-ridden, Tess must grapple with her own devastating, life-altering loss while also navigating life as a budding young woman – and all the challenges that come with this.

A powerful, heart-wrenching coming of age drama about a teenager navigating grief starring Sadie Sink, Justin Bartha, and Vivien Lyra Blair.
