Imogen Poots has moved into the lead role in Mobile Homes, a feature film adapted from the award-winning short film of the same title. Poots will star as Ali, a young woman drifting from one motel room to the next alongside her boyfriend Evan and her 8-year-old son. Living on the fringe, the makeshift gets by hustling animals in a criminal underworld, but when a crisis rips their lives apart, Ali finds herself in a mobile home community where the promise of a new beginning for her son forces her to reexamine the very meaning of motherhood.
Written and directed by Vladimir de Fontenay (Memoria) with Benoit Soler (director of photography on 2013 Cannes Caméra d’Or winner Ilo Ilo), the Canada-France co-production currently being filmed in and around the Niagra Falls areas. From Lithium Studios, Incognito Films, and Madeleine Films, Mobile Homes was developed by Madeleine Films owner Fréderic de Goldschmidt. Imogen Poots is repped by Independent Talent Group and CAA.
