King paired her figure-hugging ensemble with white peep toe heels and a small white purse.

Her long brown hair was styled with a center parting and fell loose around her shoulders.

She made the independent feature in early 2018 in Toronto where it screened for the first time later that same year at the city’s International Film Festival.
