In Nia DaCosta’s Little Woods, opening this weekend, Tessa Thompson plays Ollie, a woman trying to survive the last few days of her probation after getting caught illegally selling prescription pills in a rural North Dakota town on the Canadian border. When Ollie’s younger sister, Deb (Lily James), faces mounting financial and personal crisis of an unexpected pregnancy, a deadbeat ex-boyfriend, and a mortgage that is past due, Ollie is forced to decide if she’s willing to return to a way of life she thought she’d left behind for just one more score – this time to save her family. The feminist indie drama is gripping, tightly paced, and full of thrills.

Ahead of its theatrical release, Nia DaCosta and Tessa Thompson chatted with Remezcla about Little Woods and being women of color working to make lasting change in Hollywood.
