Jenna Ortega, the rising star of Hollywood, reaffirms her status as one to watch with her latest role in the upcoming film Miller’s Girl. While we witnessed her delve into a darker character in Wednesday, this portrayal exudes a more mature and sophisticated shade of darkness.  

Ortega is no stranger to Netflix, having starring roles in You, Yes Day, The Babysitter: Killer Queen, and Wednesday. While Wednesday is one of the streaming platform's most popular series, her latest project, Miller’s Girl, will not be on Netflix. Instead, it’ll be gracing movie theaters on Jan. 26. 

What is Miller's Girl about?

While Jenna Ortega is no stranger to horror/thriller films, this role differs from what we’re used to seeing her in. In Miller’s Girl, Ortega portrays Cairo Sweet, a creative writing student who quickly becomes fond of her professor, Mr. Miller, played by Martin Freeman.

After a creative writing assignment, the two find themselves in a complicated relationship. It’s usually the older male teacher seducing the younger female student, but in this case, the student seduces the teacher.

While teacher and student relationships in film and TV aren’t new, I’m curious to see if fans will react positively or negatively. Will it make a difference since Cairo is of age or will it still be cringe? Watch the trailer for the intriguing film below.

Who stars in the movie with Jenna Ortega?

  • Martin Freeman as Jonathan Miller 
  • Jenna Ortega as Cairo Sweet 
  • Gideon Adlon 
  • Bashir Salahuddin 
  • Dagmara Domińczyk 
  • Christine Adams 

Miller's Girl was written and directed by Jade Halley Bartlett and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Currently, there's no word of whether and when the film can be watched on a streaming service after its theatrical run. It's most likely to stream on Starz, though the film's distributor, Lionsgate, recently made a streaming deal with Peacock, so keep your eyes peeled!

Will you travel to theaters to watch it or wait for it to become available to stream?
