Female friendship is the subject of writer-director Joan Carr-Wiggin’s fourth film, If You See Her. Carr-Wiggin’s follow up to this year’s romantic comedy If I Were You will star Janet Montgomery (Spies of Warsaw, Our Idiot Brother) and Sara Paxton (The Innkeepers, Aquamarine) as two childhood friends who have grown apart pulled back into each other’s orbit by secrets and of course, a wedding.

Read Paragraph Pictures’ summary of the film, which recently began shooting in Canada:

When Heather (Janet Montgomery) and Sarah Ann (Sara Paxton) were kids they knew they would be best friends forever. But Heather left the small town on the last day of high school vowing never to return. Forced to return when her father becomes ill, the cynical young documentary filmmaker is pressured into filming Sarah Ann’s wedding video. Heather is convinced that the anarchist filmmaker and bubbly pink-wearing bride have nothing in common, but as the big day approaches she finds that no one is quite what they seem – especially the old friend she thought she knew better than anyone.    

Peter Firth, Tom Cullen and Alex Kingston round out the cast.
