Virginia Minnesota is much more than a chick flick

Virginia Minnesota has a strong cast, with Pretty Little Liars Aurora Perrinuea and Allegiant’s Rachel Hendri leading the cast.  Daniel Stine steps into his directing shoes well with a memorable debut. This is a film that is not only a great film to watch with the girls over a bottle of wine, you can bring your boyfriend along too!

Two young women, torn apart by a childhood tragedy, unexpectedly reunite and embark on an illuminating 24-hour journey, where they unlock memories of long forgotten innocence and what it means to truly believe.
