ALI & AVA (2021): New Trailer Starring Adeel Akhtar, Claire Rushbrook, Ellora Torchia…

From writer/director Clio Barnard comes new England-set drama Ali & Ava; a story about two people, both lonely for different reasons, and for whom sparks fly.

Ali & Ava stars Claire Rushbrook, Adeel Akhtar and Ellora Torchia.

It’s the combination of the music and story editing that had me moved; no doubt in part due to the chemistry between the two leads. There’s also my general appreciation of stories about unexpected friendships.

Even with all the above stated, I’m still not sure whether I’ll end up watching Ali & Ava. However, as always, anything is possible as long as the right mood hits. Until that time arrives, I’m going to keep replaying this well-executed trailer.

What are your thoughts on director Barnard’s trailer? Are you moved, intrigued, just into the music, or something else?

Natalie Gavin, Shaun Thomas and Tasha Connor also star.

Ali & Ava Release Dates… March 4th, 2022 (UK)…
