Back in January, Kiernan shot a short film by director Grainger David, entitled Edge Of The Woods. There is an article on Hollywood Mom Blog (click link for article) about Kiernan's role in the film. Click the preview picture above for more production stills, here is a summary of the film.
The Edge of the Woods is a narrative short film set in a rural farming community in the 1940s, which tells the story of a child named Alice. Alice attempts to convince her parents to let her keep the strange little monster that lives in her basement. Per David, "The whole idea is [that] in this weird little corner of the world, kids get to grow up with a strange little creature, a kind of creature-companion that has to be put down as a coming of age ritual. And this is one of the last ones. People think it's a primitive practice. They don't want to do it anymore. So she has one of the last little creatures, and she's trying to keep it. I'm really excited by it."
