The Twilight Saga’s Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning will be seen on screen yet again at the HollyShorts film fest, where a short in which they act “Cutlass”, will be screened on opening night. The film (directed by Kate Hudson) released in 2007, quite some time before the pair worked together on “The Twilight Saga: New Moon”, the film set most commonly linked to their acquaintance. Subsequent to their work on “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”, they went on to co-star in “The Runaways” in which Stewart played Joan Jett and Fanning played real-life bandmate Cherie Currie.
With a mission of “showcasing the best and brightest short films from around the globe”, the 7th annual HollyShorts Film Festival will run from August 11th to 18th in Hollywood. Other opening night features will include shorts directed by Jennifer Aniston, Rachel Weisz, and Kristen Kiwi Smith, and acted by Robin Wright, Kris Kristofferson, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Anna Faris, among others.
“Cutlass” follows a middle-aged woman, Robin (played by Virginia Madsen) as she reminisces about her teenage years and her first car, an Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. The tale is told alongside Robin’s consideration of her own daughter, Lacy, as she comes of age. Stewart plays a young Robin. Fanning plays teenager Lacy. [Source]
