Director: Nathan Frankowski
Starring: Rupert Friend, Kat Dennings, Chad Michael Murray
Based on the true story that started a global movement and Nonprofit by the same name, To Write Love on Her Arms presents a vision of hope, healing and redemption in the face of extreme adversity. In a complete departure from her humorous character on 2 Broke Girls, Emmy Award winner Kat Dennings plays Renee Yohe, a 19-year old girl struggling with addiction and abuse. In a creative blend of artistic fantasy and music conflicted with harsh reality, Renee discovers the value of genuine friendships and embarks on a daunting yet courageous journey towards recovery. Accompanied by her friends.
The charity, TWLOHA was founded by Jamie Tworkowski in March 2006. Prior to that, the seeds of the group were sown by a story written by Tworkowski about Renee. The inspiration for the movie came in an effort to increase awareness about depression and self-harm, while also advocating tolerance towards those affected. The film also stars Chad Michael Murray, Rupert Friend and Corbin Blue.
