Set during the Cuban Missile Crisis, “Dear Eleanor” follows two teens who travel across the country in search of former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. The film began shooting last week in Colorado, and is being directed by Kevin Connolly (of “Entourage” fame) and produced by bud Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way. Jessica Alba and Joel Courtney also star.
Isabelle, who first caught Hollywood’s attention as creepy kid Esther in “Orphan,” has been keeping busy with roles in “Between,” “After Earth” and “The Wilderness of James,” in addition to directing a music video for sis Madeline.
And to think, our greatest achievement at 16 was getting a drivers license (parallel parking is HAAAARD). Good on you, girl!
