Overview

Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody makes her feature directorial debut with this romantic comedy-drama about a young woman whose close brush with death prompts her to reject her strict religious upbringing and venture to Las Vegas on a journey of self discovery. Twenty-one-year-old Montana native Lamb Mannerheim Julianne Hough was a devoted churchgoer until the day she was nearly burned to death. In the aftermath of that terrifying experience, Lamb realized that life was too short to spend singing hymns in her small-town church. It was time to start living, and the hearty insurance payout lining Lamb's pocket would give her the freedom to go wherever her heart desires. Convinced that Las Vegas is the best place to experience all that she's been missing in life, Lamb packs her bags, and books a flight to Sin City. It doesn't take her long to make a few new friends Russell Brand and Octavia L. Spencer once she hits the Strip, and soon this once-devout girl is discovering just how much the world has to offer. Nick Offerman and Holly Hunter co-star.
