Ready for something a little different? Let’s step away from the world of killer androids, superheroes, and even transforming robots. Instead, let’s hone in on something we all love… We all love a good rom-com, don’t we? There’s something incredibly sweet and endearing about them, and part of it might be down to how earthly they feel. Whenever we go to the cinema, we’re always transported to these fantastical worlds with these larger-than-life characters. What rom-coms do is present us with characters we can fully relate to and understand, and that’s where Rye Lane comes in…
From breakout director Raine Allen-Miller, Rye Lane is a romantic comedy that stars Vivian Oparah (Class, The Rebel) and David Jonsson (Industry, Deep State), as Yas and Dom, two twenty-somethings both reeling from bad break-ups, who connect over the course of an eventful day in South London – helping each other deal with their nightmare exes, and potentially restoring their faith in romance.
Rye Lane will be coming to cinemas on March 17th, 2023.
Searchlight Pictures, BBC Film, and BFI present Rye Lane, a DJ Films and Turnover Films production.
