Check Out Beanie Feldstein In New 'How To Build A Girl' Trailer
The first trailer has just been released for Beanie Feldstein's new movie How to Build a Girl, based on Caitlin Moran's novel! Check it out and see the official poster!
Beanie Feldstein is going British in her newest role! Her upcoming film How to Build a Girl sees the actress known for Booksmart and Lady Bird starring as a bored English teenager, "Johanna Morrigan". In People's exclusive first look at the trailer, "Johanna" is introduced to the audience as she expresses her desire to lead a more exciting life.
"How much longer am I going to have to be here?” she wonders aloud. "I want to burn, I want to explode. I want to have sexual intercourse… With someone who has a car". After she becomes a music critic at a popular magazine though, "Johanna" attempts to fit into the new lifestyle she's found herself living— which includes drastically changing her appearance.
Feldstein says How to Build a Girl was "daunting" to film
Feldstein's character "Johanna" even changes her name as she assimilates herself into the rock and roll lifestyle, as the trailer shows her proclaiming the decision to her family. "Johanna Morrigan is dead," she announces. "This is the legendary Dolly Wilde".
As "Johanna" becomes further immersed in the rock scene, she confronts the idea that her new persona contradicts the idea of her that people once had. "What do you do when you build yourself only to realize you’ve built yourself with the wrong things?” she asks. "You rip it up and start again".
Feldstein spoke about her experience filming How to Build a Girl with People and Entertainment Weekly when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival back in September. "I never thought of myself as a brave person before,” she admitted. “I just didn’t associate with that. And then, after we wrapped, I thought, ‘Maybe I’m a little bit brave'".

"#HowToBuildAGirl is based on @mscaitlinmoran 's magical novel and is the story of a teenage girl who is full of hope and passion and joy. I feel we could all use a little of those things in our lives these days".
How to Build a Girl will be coming to video on demand on May 8th. The film also stars Alfie Allen, Frank Dillane Paddy Considine, Sarah Solemani, Jameela Jamil, Chris O’Dowd, Michael Sheen and Emma Thompson.
