What better way to kick-off Monday than with a new sneak peek trailer from for the Eva Mendes dramedy, Girl In Progress?! The Latina beauty stars as Grace, a single mom who is too busy juggling work, bills, and her married lover Dr. Hartford (Matthew Modine), to give her daughter, Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez) the attention she desperately needs.
When Ansiedad’s English teacher, Ms. Armstrong (Patricia Arquette), introduces her students to classic coming-of-age stories, Ansiedad is inspired to skip adolescence and jump-start her life without mom. While Grace becomes preoccupied with the increasing affections of her co-worker (Eugenio Derbez), Ansiedad enlists the help of her loyal friend, Tavita (Raini Rodriguez), to plot her shortcut to “adulthood”. But as her misguided plan unravels, Ansiedad and Grace must learn that sometimes growing-up means acting your age.
We keep hearing amazing things about 16-year-old Cierra, who is making her feature film debut alongside Mendes, so keep your eyes on her!
Girl in Progress hits theaters on April 27th, 2012.
