Ali & Ava (2022)
Enveloped in music, humour and emotion, Ali and Ava is a feel good, heartfelt, contemporary love story written and directed by BAFTA-nominated Clio Barnard (The Arbor, The Selfish Giant).
Sparks fly after Ali and Ava meet through their shared affection for Sofia, the child of Ali’s tenants whom Ava teaches at school.
Ali finds comfort in Ava’s warmth and kindness while Ava finds Ali’s complexity and humour irresistible. As the pair begin to form a deep connection they have to find a way to keep their newfound passion from being overshadowed by the stresses and struggles of their separate lives and histories.
Ali & Ava is BIFA award-winning and has also been BAFTA nominated for Outstanding British Film of the Year and Best Leading Actor.
