In her latest film, Eliza Dushku plays the sister of an autistic woman looking for love. “Jane Wants a Boyfriend” has already been shown at a couple film festivals last month.

The movie debuted at the Greenwich International Film Festival in Connecticut and also was a selection at the Lower East Side Film Festival in New York City. Both took place in June.

Inspired by a true story, the film stars Louisa Krause as Jane and Watertown’s own Dushku as her sister Bianca. It is directed by William C. Sullivan and was written by Jarret Kerr.

The description on the film’s website says: “Despite dealing with the everyday challenges of being on the autism spectrum, Jane looks to her older sister Bianca, to help her find her very first boyfriend. As the innocent Jane embarks on new territory, and as Bianca worries that Jane’s heart will be broken, they open up a new chapter in their relationship as sisters.”

The film has not been scheduled to be in theaters,  yet.
