COMING SOON! FIRST BANNER
Canadian actor Ryan Gosling to star in Universal Pictures' First Banner, the riveting story of the great seamstress, Betsy Ross. Legend has it that in 1776 and while working in her upholstery shop in New Jersey, Betsy Ross got a visit from General George Washington. He wanted her to design and sew a flag for a new nation. However, First Banner will focus on Betsy's life prior to this alleged visit. Gosling gives the performance of his life in his compelling first-person portrayal of Betsy Ross, as she sews and repairs uniforms and upholstered chairs and other various assorted colonial sundry. "Betsy was a standout with the scissors," stated Gosling, as he adjusted his frilly shift. "It was a human achievement."
