Rising star Yaya Dacosta attended the premiere of her new film Whole Lotta Sole at the 2012 Tribecca Film festival this past weekend.

The actress stars alongside Brendan Fraser in a crime comedy about an American man hiding out in Belfast from his mob affiliated father-in-law. Johnson plays Maguire’s (Fraser) love interest Sophie, who gets entangled in her lover’s drama, which escalates into a hostage situation. The official synopsis reads:

In a rowdy little corner of Belfast, hapless young father Jimbo Reagan is having an unlucky week. Indebted to big-time gangster Mad Dog Flynn for $5,000, Jimbo decides to knock over the local fish market, only to find out post-robbery that it’s a front for Mad Dog’s illegal operations! On the lam with nowhere to turn, Jimbo holes up in a local antique shop and things go from bad to worse when he unwittingly takes five hostages. Shop manager Joe Maguire (Brendan Fraser) is one of these wrong-place-wrong-time hostages, but the situation proves to be serendipitous as Jimbo and Joe unearth encouraging discoveries about their intersecting pasts.
