Dern Shows Tenderness

Joins Russell Crowe thriller

Just in time for its shoot, which kicks off today, Laura Dern has joined Russell Crowe’s next movie, Tenderness.

The John Polson thriller, adapted by Emil Stern from Robert Cormier’s novel, follows the threat posed by dangerous teenage tearaway Eric. When he joins forces with Lori, a 16-year-old runaway who falls for him, it’s up to Lieutenant Cristofuoro (Crowe) to figure the kid out and stop his rampage.
