Abigail Breslin's Little Miss Sunshine days seem like a distant memory now!
In Perfect Sisters, the 17-year-old actress and The Chronicles of Narnia star Georgie Henley almost get away with murdering their alcoholic mother, played by Mira Sorvino. The film is actually based on the true story of Toronto's media-dubbed "Bathtub Girls," the two sisters who reportedly used prescription pills and alcohol to kill their mom in the bathtub in 1998.
The Perfect Sisters trailer, which premiered Monday on Yahoo Movies, shows Abigail and 18-year-old Georgie's characters trapped in what appears to be a hopeless situation. First their parents split, and then their mother loses her job and enters into a relationship with an abusive boyfriend.
Feeling like they're out of options, the pair conspire with their friends—leaving records of this online—and devise a plan to "get her [their mom] plastered, make her take a bath, and make it look like she drowned."
At first, this all seems to go off without a hitch. The mom's death is initially ruled accidental, but when "the whole school is talking about what happened" and teenage gossip brings the premeditated truth to light, police start to look closer at the sisters and their suspicious behavior.
Perfect Sisters opens in April 11.
