MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A 9-year-old girl from Miami is the focus of a new film which boasts an A-list ensemble cast.
The movie, Reclaim, is a high-energy, edge of your seat suspense thriller about a couple who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth behind their newly adopted daughter’s disappearance and the dangerous secret behind the adoption agency they trusted.
The film stars Ryan Philippe and Rachel LeFevre as the adoptive parents.
Risking their own lives, they will discover just what being a parent means and how far they will go to get their child back.
That child is played by Miami’s own Briana Roy, a 9-year-old girl making her feature film debut.
“I play Nina, an 8-year-old from Haiti whose parents died in the earthquake in Haiti, but she got adopted and there’s a lot of stuff going on and stuff I don’t want to reveal. You have to watch the movie,” explained Briana to CBS4’s Lisa Petrillo.
John Cusack plays Benjamin, the evil head of the shady adoption agency.
Briana told Lisa that working with this A-list cast was quite the learning experience.
“It was a very great experience working with all those actors, they taught me so much”, she said.
Briana has been on camera since she was a toddler.
“It all happened when my mom saw potential in me that I could be a model,” she said sweetly. “Then she discovered I could be an actress and she put me in acting class.
A fourth grader now, Briana is homeschooled . She said making the movie was a blast but there were a few difficult parts.
“The hardest part was speaking all the languages, French, Creole and English.“ she explained.
“I’m very excited to see myself on the big screen and see what they did in editing and all the scary parts too,” Briana said.
And to all the girls with big dreams like hers, Briana has this message: “There’s something I want to add to the little girls who want to pursue their dreams. Go for it. Don’t let anyone intimidate you.”
Reclaim is now playing. It’s rated R.
