The indie comedy Dirty Girl will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday, September 12.

The film's relatively unknown stars are being supported by a long list of Hollywood staples, including Milla Jovovich, Mary Steenburgen, William H. Macy and country music stars Dwight Yoakam and Tim McGraw.

Set in Oklahoma in the late 80s, first time writer-director Abe Sylvia's film revolves around Danielle (played by Juno Temple, Cracks, Year One, Atonement), a promiscuous Norman High student who enlists Clarke, a gay but closeted boy played by newcomer Jeremy Dozier (Five Reasons to Kill Casper Moronii), to run away with her from their small town.

Temple's character sets off in search of the father she never knew, while Dozier plays the role of a boy who wants to avoid being enrolled in military school and has yet to admit his sexual orientation.

Western music singer Yoakam plays Clarke's homophobic father.

The thirty-fifth iteration of the festival opens on September 9 and runs for ten days.
