The first trailer for forthcoming British comedy film Black Mountain Poets has been released.
The film, which we first told you about back in April, is the third feature written and directed by Jamie Adams, following 2014’s A Wonderful Christmas Time and Benny & Jolene, the latter of which featured Dolly Wells and Laura Patch in its cast.
Wells and Patch return in Black Mountain Poets, alongside none other than Alice Lowe, as well as Downton Abbey’s Tom Cullen, Rosa Robson and Adams regular collaborator Richard Elis. In it, Alice and Dolly play a pair of wannabe thieves on the run, who go in hiding at a countryside poetry club in the Black Mountains of Wales.
Shot in just five days, and partially improvised, the film premières at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on 22nd June, and will be released theatrically and on-demand later this year. As soon as we have confirmed release dates, we’ll let you know. You can see the trailer below.
