As immigration reform once again becomes a hotly debated topic among the halls of Washington power players, there is perhaps no better time for "The Girl" to be hitting theaters. After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival last spring, and hitting the Austin Film Festival last year as well, the picture is finally gearing up for audiences everywhere. And we have some exclusive new images and a featurette for the picture that boasts a strong lead turn from Abbie Cornish.

The rising actress stars as Ashley, a troubled single mother living on the Texas and Mexico border. Needing the money, she takes a gig driving illegal immigrants over into the United States, but soon finds herself wrapped up in the fate of a little girl, and the ensuing events will change her life forever. The film is the first feature from writer/director David Riker in over a decade, but as you'll see in the video, he spent a lot of time researching the actual area where the story is set, to get the details right.

"The Girl" opens in limited release on March 8th in New York. Follow the film's website or Twitter for more info closer to March.
