Melissa Leo in "Francine"

Melissa Leo stars as a woman fresh out of prison who settles down in small-town North America in "Francine," from writer-directors Briam M. Cassidy and Melanie Shatzky. The film, nearly silent, focuses on Leo's character as she tries to regain a foothold in society through a series of temp jobs and elusive connections with others. As the new trailer suggests, her loneliness leads her to animals -- "a development that leads her in a tragically wrong direction."

Leo looks suitably miserable in what will likely prove another fierce performance by the Oscar winning ("The Fighter") and nominated ("Frozen River") actress. Here's our exclusive first look at the "Francine" poster.

The film plays for one week at MoMA in NYC starting September 12, with a national rollout to follow.
