New trailer for Sundance break-out ‘Polite Society’

Universal Pictures has dropped a new trailer for the Sundance-premiering Polite Society which is getting a cinema release in the UK in April. The film stars Priya Kansara, Ritu Arya, Nimra Bucha, Akshay Khanna, Seraphina Beh, and Ella Bruccoleri, and is written and directed by Nida Manzoor.

A merry mash up of sisterly affection, parental disappointment and bold action, Polite Society follows martial artist-in-training Ria Khan who believes she must save her older sister Lena from her impending marriage. After enlisting the help of her friends, Ria attempts to pull off the most ambitious of all wedding heists in the name of independence and sisterhood.

We managed to review the film at Sundance, calling it ‘a refreshing meld of action, coming-of-age story and comedy. All the components harmonise beautifully to create an eye-catching feature debut that may just be the next Bend it Like Beckham.‘ I’ll take that.

Check out our full review at the end of this link and the new trailer below.

The film opens in cinemas in the UK on 28th April.
