An Update on Paula Brancati

It’s so difficult to keep up with all the old cast members, but we’ve got a little update on Paula Brancati today. A trailer for her new movie Moon Point was released yesterday, and it actually looks really good! The movie does not have a specific release date yet, but hopefully we will get a chance to see it soon. This is what the description says:

Moon Point is the funny, quirky story of Darryl Strozka, an ambitionless 24-year old who travels hundreds of miles in a wagon hooked onto the back of his friend’s electric wheelchair. He embarks on this quest in hopes of tracking down Sarah Cherry, his elementary school crush, now an obscure B-movie actress shooting a horror film in Moon Point. Darryl believes that taking Sarah to his cocky cousin’s upcoming wedding will finally prove to his family that he isn’t as worthless as they make him out to be.
