CLEVELAND, Ohio – "Miss Meadows," the film starring Katie Homes that was shot in Cleveland this past August, will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on Monday.
The dark comedy is written and directed by Karen Leigh Hopkins (writer for "Stepmom"), and produced by Eric Brenner and Rob Carliner ("Crazy Heart"). The crew filmed scenes in Cleveland's University Circle area.
In August, Holmes was spotted with her daughter Suri Cruise (fathered by Holmes' ex-husband Tom Cruise) heading to lunch at Lucky's Café in Tremont. The filming apparently attracted a decent amount of paparazzi as well.
"Miss Meadows" will become the third film shot in Cleveland to premiere this year. However, given its small budget, the film had a relatively low-key shoot compared to "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Draft Day."
"Miss Meadows" has yet to debut a trailer. However, a synopsis from California-based Film Bridge International, which acts as an executive producer for films, is as follows:
"A dark comedy about a substitute school teacher with impeccable manners and grace who has no idea just how beautiful and wickedly funny she is... because she is focused solely on her mission: to rid the community of predators and evil of all kinds with her well polished little gun inside her pocketbook."
"Miss Meadows" will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday, April 21 and show again on Wednesday and Thursday, April 23 and 24. Huffington Post recently included the film on its "Must-See Movies" at the festival.
