Ali & Ava

Programme Type: Film|Length: 95 mins| Cert:

Both lonely for different reasons, Ali (Adeel Akhtar) and Ava (Claire Rushbrook) meet through their shared affection for Sofia, the 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, humour and emotion, ALI & AVA is a heartfelt contemporary love story written and directed by BAFTA-nominated Clio Barnard (The Arbor, The Selfish Giant).

"It's a tender and, eventually, joyful film, powered by two extraordinarily lived-in performances from Akhtar and Rushbrook." David Jenkins, Little White Lies
