The Tribes of Palos Verdes

Irish teenage actress extraordinaire, currently filming the eponymous lead role of Hanna in Finland and Germany, is set to star in another major feature film.

Saoirse Ronan is set to star in up-coming adaptation of Joy Nicholson's debut novel, The Tribes of Palos Verdes.

The book is a dark coming-of-age story about twins growing up in the exclusive Southern Californian community of Palos Verdes.

14 year old Medina Mason is a defiant, awkward newcomer to the affluent beach community of Palos Verdes, California. As her parents' marriage disintegrates and her beloved brother falls prey to the temptations of drugs and the lunacy of their mother, Medina surfs to survive, finding a bitter solace in the rough comfort of the waves. This is the moving story of growing up "different," of the love between siblings, and of one girl's power to save herself.
