Katie Holmes is making the rounds for her upcoming film Rare Objects, which releases in select theaters and on IFC's streaming platform this Friday, April 14.

The passion project was a seven-year long labor of love for the actress-turned-director, an adaptation of the 2016 historical fiction novel of the same name by Kathleen Tessaro.

As opposed to the original, however, which was set in Depression-era Boston, Katie's rendition is set in the present day of pandemic-stricken New York City.

A longtime resident and lover of the city herself, that wasn't the only nod to something familiar that the 44-year-old was able to add, though.

At the very end of the credits for the two-hour flick, it reads: "This film is dedicated to SURI," a touching tribute to her 16-year-old daughter shared with ex-husband Tom Cruise. What's more, Suri also sings for the film.

The Dawson's Creek star's lookalike teenager also featured in her mom's previous directorial, Alone Together and she sounded just like Katie.

Suri sang "Blue Moon" in the opening credits for the film, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2022, and was mentioned in the dedication once again at the end.

Katie spoke to Yahoo! Entertainment about her daughter's role in the movie and said: "She's very, very talented. She said she would do it and she recorded it and I let her do her thing.

"That's the way I direct in general: It's like, 'This is what I think we all want - go do your thing'." On being asked why she chose Suri for the job, she responded: "I always want the highest level of talent, so I asked her."

Katie opened up about how the duo coped together during the height of the pandemic in an interview with Amazing magazine.
