Barbie Ferriera is hittin’ the road…
HBO Max has released the first trailer for the streamer’s original film Unpregnant, starring the 23-year-old Brazilian American actress and plus-size model.
The film centers on two teenage girls going on a road trip from Missouri to New Mexico in order to get one of them an abortion without her parents’ and boyfriend’s knowledge.
The movie stars Haley Lu Richardson as ambitious 17-year-old Veronica, who gets pregnant, and then recruits estranged friend Bailey (Ferriera) to drive her in a stolen Trans-Am to get the procedure she needs.
The film is directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg, who also wrote the film with the authors of the 2019 novel it’s based on, Jenni Hendriks and Ted Caplan, plus Jennifer Kaytin Robinson and William Parker.
Ferriera’s other credits include Vice’s How to Behave, as well as HBO’s Divorce and Euphoria.
