Los Angeles:

A film about Hillary Clinton is in the making and has been titled “When I’m a Moth”.

The indie movie has tapped “Fallen” actress Addison Timlin to portray young Clinton.

The project is being directed by Magdalena Zyzak and Zachary Cotler, who also co-write the script.

According to TheWrap, the film will focus on the time when Clinton did odd jobs in Alaska in 1969, between her college graduation and the start of her law career.

Cotler said that “When I’m a Moth” would not be a biopic.  Rather, he said that the film would be about “how politics makes you not real.”As for Timlin, she also claimed that “Moth” would not be a traditional biopic.

“There are plenty of moments where we’re like, ‘This didn’t happen’. It’s less about that time in her life and (more) about...this young woman starting to have the understanding that her life from that point forward will be lived in a very specific way as to not disturb anyone-to become a very well-liked person,” she added.

“When I’m a Moth” is set to be released in the US in 2018.
