ALI & AVA

Sparks fly as two people develop a deep connection despite the lingering legacy of past relationships.

SYNOPSIS

Both lonely for different reasons, Ali and Ava meet through their shared affection for Sofia, the young child of Ali’s Slovakian tenants, whom Ava teaches. Ali finds comfort in Ava’s warmth and kindness and Ava finds Ali’s complexity and humour irresistible. Over a lunar month, sparks fly and a deep connection begins to grow. However, the legacy of Ava’s past relationship and Ali’s emotional turmoil at the breakdown of his marriage begins to overshadow their newfound passion.

Enveloped in music and imbued with humour, ALI & AVA is a compelling contemporary love story written and directed by BAFTA-nominated Clio Barnard (The Arbor, The Selfish Giant, Dark River).

Reviews

“It’s a tender and, eventually, joyful film, powered by two extraordinarily lived-in performances from Akhtar and Rushbrook. ”

David Jenkins

Little White Lies

“Akhtar imbues Ali with such an aliveness, an electric joyfulness teetering on the edge of sorrow, that he is a whole enough character to fill any unintentional gaps. ”

Jude Dry

indieWire

Ali & Ava has an undeniable and attractive glow of authenticity.”
