The mind boggles.
Deadline is reporting that 13-year-old Mad Men actress Kiernan Shipka has signed on for the lead role in Lifetime's upcoming Flowers in the Attic adaptation. I guess this answers my question as to whether or not people think this movie is going to be a Crazy Big Deal; I doubt an actress of Shipka's stature would sign on to a role like this* if everyone's hopes weren't very, very high. But that raises another question: WHY WOULD HER PARENTS LET HER DO THIS?!? . . .
