Lionsgate and Pantelion Films introduces their new film, “Girl in Progress,” directed by Patricia Riggen and starring Eva Mendes as well as Matthew Modine and Cierra Ramirez.

The film follows a girl who wants to grow up too soon:

“Grace (Eva Mendes) is a single mom. She is too busy juggling work, bills, and the very married Dr. Harford (Matthew Modine), to give her daughter, Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez) the attention she desperately needs. When Ansiedad’s English teacher, Ms. Armstrong (Patricia Arquette), introduces her students to classic coming-of-age stories, Ansiedad is inspired to skip adolescence and jump-start her life without mom. While Grace becomes preoccupied with the increasing affections of her co-worker (Eugenio Derbez), Ansiedad enlists the help of her loyal friend, Tavita (Raini Rodriguez), to plot her shortcut to “adulthood”. But as her misguided plan unravels, Ansiedad and Grace must learn that sometimes growing-up means acting your age.”

ShockYa will soon have a screening report on the film, so be sure to keep it locked to ShockYa for more information about the film. Until then, the trailer for the film is available below. The film will be officially released in theaters May 11.
