Gimme Shelter stars Vanessa Hudgens as a runaway pregnant teenager who is escaping a drug-addicted mother (Rosario Dawson, recently seen in that Sin City: A Dame to Kill For trailer) and whose father (Brendan Frasier) doesn’t even know she exists.
The film is arriving on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download April 29 and to celebrate, we present two exclusive clips of Hudgens talking about why the film is so important, and then on a lighter note, she talks about her hopes and dreams for what’s next in her career.
First up, Hudgens talks about the gritty film that is based on the real life experiences of pregnant teens in shelters and the tough, and sometimes warm, moments they share as they embark on the journey of motherhood.
Hudgens dishes why this film is so important and why this is one of these issues that should not be swept under the rug.
Then, Hudgens talks about the genres of movies she would like to explore as her career moves away from Disney darling into more meaty fare like she has with Gimme Shelter.
For fans of Hudgens who still watch High School Musical 3 online, it’s nice to see her branch out and to see that Gimme Shelter is the first page in a new chapter of her life and career.
