Ellen Page and Allison Janney raise a kidnapped baby in Tallulah trailer

Juno co-stars Ellen Page and Allison Janney are teaming up to care for a baby yet again, but with fewer laughs this time around.

The first trailer for the upcoming Netflix dramedy Tallulah sees a homeless young woman named Lu (Page) posing as a housekeeper and taking a baby away from negligent mother Carolyn (Tammy Blanchard) after witnessing her dependence on alcohol and emotional breakdown. Unsure where to turn, Lu brings the stolen baby to the only responsible adult she knows: her ex-boyfriend’s mother, Margo (Janney), and lies that the child is her granddaughter.

Dealing with a divorce and a runaway son, Margo feels as unanchored as Lu, and they begin to take care of the baby together. But as Carolyn begins searching for her taken child with the help of her protective services agent (Uzo Aduba), things become much more complex.

Tallulah debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and was quickly purchased by Netflix for a reported $5 million before the festival even began. The movie also stars Zachary Quinto, John Benjamin Hickey, and David Zayas.

Tallulah begins streaming on Netflix on July 29.
