Jena Malone and Pablo Schreiber Star in Tribeca Film Festival Feature ‘Lorelei’


2020 has forced many film festivals, including Tribeca Film Festival, into the difficult decision to postpone their annual celebration of films, which has impacted countless individuals who worked tirelessly on some brilliant films.

One such film is Lorelei which was set to make its world debut in the U.S. Narrative Competition prior to the festival’s decision to postpone. Lorelei dives into the world of the American working class and the struggles they face. Lorelei‘s cast is led by Jena Malone, who has graced our screens in both The Hunger Games franchise and The Neon Demon. Opposite Malone is Emmy and Tony nominee Pablo Schreiber from American Gods, Orange is the New Black, and the upcoming Apple TV+ series Defending Jacob.

Shot in Oregon, Lorelei follows the story of Wayland (Pablo Schreiber) who is released from prison after serving 15 years for armed robbery. Following his release, he returns to his blue-collar hometown and inadvertently reconnects with his high school girlfriend Dolores (Jena Malone), now a single mother struggling to support her three kids, who are all named after different shades of blue. Shortly after their reunion, Wayland moves in with the chaotic family and becomes a reluctant yet much-needed father figure. Struggling to pay the bills, Wayland finds himself drawn back to his old ways as Dolores yearns for her pre-motherhood dream of living in Los Angeles.

Lorelei is the feature film debut for director and screenwriter Sabrina Doyle and comes to film lovers from producers of The Florida Project. The cast also includes Amelia Borgerding, Parker Pascoe-Sheppard, and Chancellor Perry as Dolores’ three children Periwinkle Blue, Denim Blue, and Dodger Blue respectively.
