Dakota Fanning Is in the Middle of a Scandalous Shower Hookup, Okay?

3 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the new movie Very Good Girls, Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen play teenage best friends who spend one long, lazy summer seducing the same guy (Boyd Holbrook). Olsen, however, doesn't realize that Fanning is fooling around with her new beau; Fanning is keeping it a secret from everyone, as you'll see in this exclusive clip, where she embarks on a scandalous shower hookup with Holbrook even as she carries on a conversation with her mother (Ellen Barkin), who's just outside the bathroom door. (If you feel bad for Olsen, since her screen Bf is secretly canoodling with her screen Bff, know that she won the battle in real life: Olsen and Holbrook got engaged this year after two years of dating.) Very Good Girls is currently available on VOD, and it'll be out in theaters July 25. »

Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning don't want to be 'Very Good Girls' -- Video

3 June 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It’s the summer before college and best friends Lilly (Dakota Fanning) and Gerry (Elizabeth Olsen) decide that they have to lose their virginity. And soon.

Unfortunately, in Very Good Girls, they fall for the same dreamy “ice cream guy,” played by Boyd Holbrook.

Even though it could just as easily be the set up for a raunchy, slapstick sex comedy, first time director Naomi Foner (Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s mom) has chosen a more elegant, subdued path in her examination of female friendship, jealously and betrayal on the edge of adulthood. Jenny Lewis even provided the music.

Watch: Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen Revisit 'American Pie' in Virginity Loss Drama 'Very Good Girls'

3 June 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Many of us would kill to be best friends with Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen, but maybe not so much in Naomi Foner's directorial debut, "Very Good Girls." In this first trailer for the film, we are introduced to Lilly (Fanning) and Gerry (Olsen), two best friends who make a pact to lose their virginity the summer before they leave for college. Unfortunately, they both end up falling for a suave street artist (Boyd Holbrook). Naturally, trouble ensues.  While "Very Good Girls" seems like a rather formulaic coming-of-age story, we can only hope that the excellent supporting cast, which includes Clark Gregg, Demi Moore, Richard Dreyfuss, Peter Sarsgaard and Ellen Barkin can elevate the material to something not so generic.  "Very Good Girls" opens in theaters on July 25. Mg Film is in charge of distribution. Check out the trailer below: »

Very Good Girls Trailer: Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning Want to Lose Their Virginity

3 June 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first Very Good Girls trailer for first-time writer/director Naomi Foner’s upcoming drama has been released online.  The film stars Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning as two best friends who, while home for one last New York summer, make a pact to lose their virginity before leaving for college.  Complications arise when they both start seeing the same man (Boyd Holbrook), which begins to test their lifelong friendship.  The film looks like a fairly run-of-the-mill coming-of-age drama with two talented actresses in the lead roles, but reviews from its Sundance debut last year were underwhelming to say the least.  That said, there is a silver lining in that Jenny Lewis wrote the original music.

30 April 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Though impatient fans may have not liked the 19 months in between the third and upcoming fourth season of “Louie,” Louis C.K. said the break was good for him Tuesday evening discussion with New York Times writer Bill Carter at the Directors Guild. Two episodes of the FX hit will air on May 5, to be followed by two each week for the season’s 14-episode run. 

The three episodes screened prior to C.K.’s conversation revealed more of the offbeat nature that has become the show’s signature.
