‘Very Good Girls’ Trailer: Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning Fall For The Same Guy

Hollywood likes to make casual sex in your twenties look like fun and games, but in the upcoming film Very Good Girls two of the silver screen’s brightest young stars realize that romance is nothing like what you see in the movies.
