The second first-look from Tribeca is from the film "The Pretty One." Directed and written by first-time feature-length director Jenée LaMarque, the film stars Zoe Kazan and Jake Johnson alongside Ron Livingston, John Carroll Lynch and Frances Shaw.

It's also making its wold premiere in the Narratives section, and it's a rather odd comedy/drama about twins and assuming identities. Here's the synopsis:

Audrey has all of the qualities that her twin sister Laurel wishes she possessed: confidence, style, independence. When tragedy strikes, Laurel has the opportunity to reinvent herself. In a complex performance, Zoe Kazan poignantly captures Laurel’s complex mix of loss and awakening, especially as she begins a new relationship with her neighbor (Jake Johnson). Jenée LaMarque’s first feature film is a quirky, lovely tale of identity and the eternal bond between two sisters.

LaMarque directed the shorts "Spoonful" and "Happy Deathday," which we haven't seen, but the cast and the peculiar conceit definitely make it a film worth keeping an eye on. The Tribeca Film Festival runs April 17th through 28th.

    Alice has an amazing figure, but her face makes her look so old. She's going to be a dead ringer for Judi Dench in 5 years.

    I've never heard of Alice Eve. I googled her after seeing this post and your comment. She DEFINITELY looks much older than her age (31). Even comparing these photos against the majority of image search results -- to still be so young, the difference is kind of astonishing.
