Rosario Dawson Talks GIMME SHELTER, Coming Full Circle Since Her Debut in KIDS, Responding to the Screenplay, and Collaborating with Vanessa Hudgens


Rosario Dawson undergoes a startling transformation in Gimme Shelter and delivers a powerful performance as June, an angry, abusive addict and mother of a pregnant, homeless teenager named Apple (Vanessa Hudgens) who is struggling to survive.  Dawson felt a deeply emotional and personal connection to the story and her street-weary character.  Along with Hudgens, she was willing to go to the most unattractive places women can go because she felt it was something audiences needed to see.  Opening January 24th, the inspiring drama written and directed by Ronald Krauss also features James Earl Jones, Brendan Fraser, Stephanie Szostak, Emily Meade and Ann Dowd.
