Nancy Drew MovieFor generations of fans worldwide, the name Nancy Drew is synonymous with adventure. This young amateur detective has a mind of her own, a passion for solving mysteries and a reputation for getting into – and out of – some very scary situations.

For more than 75 years, Nancy Drew has been exploring every dark path and secret staircase to find the clues that will solve the crime and confirm her reputation as everyone’s favorite teen detective. Nancy’s smart, courageous, self-assured, and she can hold her own in any situation just by being herself. For generations, her stories have offered drama and suspense, as well as fun. Nancy is always where the action is, and that’s why she never goes out of style.

This summer, a new motion picture, “Nancy Drew”, brings the timeless heroine to Los Angeles, where she is faced with a fresh set of challenges and her most baffling case yet. The movie follows Nancy as she accompanies her father Carson to Los Angeles on one of his business trips and stumbles across evidence about a long-unsolved crime involving the mysterious death of a beautiful movie star. Nancy’s resourcefulness and personal responsibility are put to the test when she finds herself in the middle of the fast-living, self-indulgent world of Hollywood.

Emma Roberts stars as the resourceful teen detective, who leaves her friendly hometown of River Heights for the West Coast and enrolls at Hollywood High. There, her unique personal style immediately sets her apart from her self-absorbed, fast-living peers. Even though she promised her worried Dad that she’d quit the “sleuthing” business, it isn’t long before Nancy gets a lead on one of the greatest unsolved cases of all time: the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of famous actress Dehlia Draycott. It happens that the Drews are staying in the former Draycott mansion, long reputed to be haunted and now a site where some very strange things have been happening.

How could she resist?…
