The To Leslie trailer features Riseborough’s Leslie, a single mother who, after wasting all her lottery winnings, returns home in an attempt to rebuild her life by facing the consequences of her mistakes.

To Leslie is directed by Michael Morris from a screenplay written by Ryan Binaco. It stars Andrea Riseborough, Allison Janney, Marc Maron, Andre Royo, Owen Teague, Stephen Root, James Landry Hebert, Matt Lauria, and Catfish Jean.

“Leslie is a West Texas single mother struggling to provide for her son when she wins the lottery and a chance at a good life,” reads the synopsis. “But a few short years later, the money is gone and Leslie is on her own, living hard and fast at the bottom of a bottle as she runs from the world of heartbreak she left behind. With her charm running out and with nowhere to go, Leslie returns home. Unwelcome and unwanted by those she wronged, it’s Sweeney, a lonely motel clerk, who takes a chance when no one else will. With his support, Leslie comes face to face with the consequences of her actions, a life of regret, and a second chance to make a good life for her and her son.”
