DetailsDirector: Clio Barnard Country: UK
Cert: 15 Year: 2021 Length: 95 mins
Boisterous landlord Ali (Adeel Akhtar) and pragmatic teaching assistant Ava (Claire Rushbrook) meet through a chance encounter. Over the course of one month, sparks fly and a connection begins to grow. But their newfound passion is threatened by the legacy of Ava's past relationship and by Ali's emotional turmoil following the breakdown of his marriage. Beautifully written, funny and warm, Ali & Ava is a keenly observed portrait of 21st century British society.

Clio Barnard’s keen ability to convey the deep realities of life through her direction has never been better. Adeel Akhtar and Claire Rushbrook are sensational.
