"The Chronicles of Narnia" child star Geogie Henley is taking her first step out of the wardrobe as she co-stars .with Oscar-nominee Abigail Breslin in the true-crime drama "Perfect Sisters." The young actresses will be playing a real life sisters as they almost get away of murdering their alcoholic mother, played by Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino.
The upcoming film is based on a true story of Toronto's media-dubbed "Bathtub Girls," Sandra and Beth Andersen. Henley and Breslin are playing the two neglected teenage sisters who reportedly used prescription pills and alcohol to eliminate their mother in 1998.

Mira Sorvino will play as Linda Andersen, an alcoholic who has a long history of abusive relationships who was killed by her two daughters while drowning her in the tub. The two Canadian sister almost got away with murder but after "the whole school is talking about what happened" the police started investigating the girls suspicious behaviors.
