To us, she may always be the pudgy-faced kid in "Little Miss Sunshine," but Abigail Breslin has more adult plans.

Following her role in "Zombieland," a decidedly grown up Breslin is now staring in the heartwarming indie film, "Janie Jones."

Here she plays Janie, a 13-year old girl who is dropped off with her estranged rocker father (Alessandro Nivola) when her mother, (Elisabeth Shue) checks into rehab.

At first, her father denied that the child was his but when she reveals her musical gifts, their connection is far deeper than they realized.

Written and directed by David M. Rosenthal, Tribeca Films is releasing the film on October 28th.
