Francesca plays 15-year-old Florence – the youngest daughter, in a religious family whose home is invaded by fugitive bank robbers.
But, instead of playing helpless victim to the marauding trio, she stands up to them and even begins a relationship with their leader Henry, played by Chad Michael Murray.
“Well both of my parents are actors and my dad directs and I grew up going and visiting them on set and watching them and listening to them and yeah, there’s been a lot of advice,” said Eastwood.
“I’m at a point in my life where it’s transitioning from parental advice to work advice which is very exciting.”
The film, which also stars Luke Wilson and Teri Polo, is touted as a Western.
“I think it’s a story that’s timeless. It could be in any era. These issues that happen in this film are issues that could happen any day. They could happen today,” commented Chad Michael Murray.
“It geographically works as a Western and I think it’s a great backdrop and it’s a great character for the story.
“But it’s not something that’s specific to the story that it has to be a Western.”
“Outlaws and Angels” – which has attracted mixed reviews – is on limited release in the US and will also be available on VOD.
