Tamara Drewe centers on an ugly duckling turned femme fatale who makes an amazing transformation — inside and out. After years away she “returns to small town country life to find that her childhood home is being readied for sale. Friends and neighbours are stunned at Tamara’s new look and a few of them can’t keep their hands off of her, leading to more than a few lies and broken hearts.”

The film co-stars Dominic Cooper, Luke Evans, and Tamsin Grieg. It’s scheduled to hit theaters in the UK on September 10th and on October 8th in the States.
