Kayli Carter is a versatile actress.
From portraying Sadie Rose in the western drama series Godless, she opened doors to more projects that led to films, such as Private Life and Bad Education. Ultimately, it led her to portray Lorna Blackledge in Let Him Go.
Her character, Lorna, was the catalyst for the story in Let Him Go. With the death of her husband, she remarried to an abusive man, who moved her and her son to a remote property. The grandparents ended up seeking their whereabouts, which leads to a surprising confrontation in this period piece.
Let Him Go stars Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as the grandparents in search of their grandson and former daughter-in-law. Thomas Bezucha directed and wrote the screenplay based on the novel by Larry Watson.
Here’s the full synopsis:
After their life is set off course following the tragic loss of their son, retired sheriff George Blackledge (Costner) and his wife Margaret (Lane) leave their Montana ranch on a mission through the North Dakota desert to rescue their young grandson from a dangerous family living off the grid. Navigating tragedy and tumult, the couple soon discovers that the Weboy family, a deep-rooted local clan led by ruthless matriarch Blanche (Lesley Manville) has no intention of letting the child go, forcing George and Margaret to ask how far they will go to fight for their family.
