Filmed entirely on location in Giles County, Va., Wish You Well was adapted from David Baldacci’s bestselling novel of the same title. After a family tragedy, a young girl moves from New York with her younger brother to live with their great grandmother on a Virginia farm and comes closer to understanding the land and roots that inspired her father’s writings while discovering herself, the love of family, and the power of truly believing.
The film stars Academy Award winner Ellen Burstyn (Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Interstellar), Mackenzie Foy (The Twilight Saga, Interstellar), and Josh Lucas (Sweet Home Alabama). It was directed by Darnell Martin (Cadillac Records) and produced by Sara Elizabeth Timmins of Life Out Loud Films, David Baldacci, and Karen Spiegel of Copper Beech Productions.
