Dakota Fanning Is Star Trek’s Biggest Fan in Please Stand By Trailer

Dakota Fanning stars as a young autistic woman who escapes from her caregiver to submit her epic Star Trek script in Please Stand By.

Magnolia Pictures has released the first trailer and photo for Please Stand By, which tells the epic story of one big Star Trek fan trying to get her story out into the world. The film had its world premiere at the Austin Film Festival in October, while also screening at the Rome Film Festival and the Virginia Film Festival over the last few months. While this isn’t exactly a Star Trek movie, it will be interesting to see how Star Trek fans spark to this unique story.

A young autistic woman runs away from her caregiver in order to boldly go and deliver her 500-page Star Trek script to a writing competition in Hollywood. On an adventure full of laughter and tears, Wendy, played with exquisite delicacy by Dakota Fanning, follows the guiding spirit of Mr. Spock on her journey into the unknown. “It is there for us to conquer, not to fear.” Directed by Ben Lewin (The Sessions) and also starring Academy Award Nominee Toni Collette, with a special guest-appearance by Patton Oswalt.
