First look at Nia DaCosta's gritty drama.


Writer/director Nia DaCosta's feature debut Little Woods stars Tessa Thompson as a former drug runner forced to return to her criminal life when her sister (Lily James) turns up with a young child in tow and another in her belly. Luke Kirby, James Badge Dale and Lance Reddick also star in the film, which collected the Nora Ephron Award at last year's Tribeca Film Festival.

Little Woods opens in US cinemas in April, but a UK/ROI release has yet to be announced. Meanwhile you can check out the first US trailer below.




The official synopsis reads:

Ollie (Tessa Thompson) is a reformed drug runner in an economically depressed small town in North Dakota, who was caught coming back from Canada with medicine for her terminally ill mother and has been toeing the line ever since. After her mother dies, Ollie’s sister Deb  (Lily James) shows up on her doorstep with a hungry child and an unplanned pregnancy. Ollie can only see one viable option: quickly raise money to pay back the bank and hold onto their mother’s home, so Deb can raise her family safely away from her abusive ex. But to do that, she’ll need to return to the dangerous way of life she thought she’d left behind.
