LARA BELMONT

This is the story of woman's struggle for her sanity and her love for her child. FAITH stays locked in her flat, petrified to go out, with her moody, controlling boyfriend MANCE. She dreams of the day she can have her daughter back but she has lost all sense of reality. The only world that seems safe for her is the dollhouse that she played with as child.

NELL, now 7, has been brought up by Faith's sister, ERIS. Facing the big 40, Eris has arranged for the child to be adopted to pursue what she sees as her last chance of love. Her boyfriend Mance wants the child out of their lives.

Pregnant with Mance's baby, Faith has to prove she can be a mother to Nell if she is to go through with the birth. The only way is for her to take Nell into to her fantasy world of the dolls but, as reality creeps in, this 'happy place' starts to reveal itself as a thin veil over her terrifying past.

As her boyfriend and sister turn increasingly against her, and Nell feels once more betrayed, Faith is left to face the thing that she fears most — herself.

DANIEL SOMMERFORD
bio

Daniel is our undiscovered talent. He decided to take up acting five years ago after a life-changing incident. A devotee of the method school, he trained under the same teacher as Lara, though they had never worked together before the auditions for Dolls Can't Cry. His stage performances (Hap Loman in Death of a Salesman and Williamson in Glengarry Glen Ross), have tended to be as miserable old men. This is first time in front of the movie camera.

EDEN NATHENSON
bio

Eden is a natural talent. At the age of nine, Dolls Can't Cry is her second major role in a film. The first one, Christmas Time, was directed by her actress mother, Zoe Nathenson (Mona Lisa, The Bill), where she played opposite a Coronation Street star. Most recently she starred as Zara in the CBBC mini-series Combat Kids. Judging by her offscreen performances on set, she's also a bit of rap star on the quiet. Lady Gaga better watch out.
