Day-of-the-Flowers-UK-Quad-PosterBAFTA-winning director John Roberts (Paulie, Say Good-bye) returns behind the camera for his first feature in over a decade with Day of the Flowers, a comedy-drama telling the tale of two strong-willed Scottish sisters.

The film is heading into cinemas at the end of the month on our shores, and we’ve got the new UK quad poster to exclusively share with you before it touches down.

Two young, strong-willed Scottish sisters, one a left-wing activist, the other a born-to-shop fashionista, take their late father’s ashes to Cuba, the site of many intriguing family legends. Arriving in Havana, the two women promptly lose the ashes and go through a series of misadventures – both romantic and dangerous – to try to retrieve them, making some surprising discoveries along the way about the family ties that hold them together. Drenched in sunlight and with a fabulous Cuban soundtrack, DAY OF THE FLOWERS is a colourful and wryly humorous tale of cross-cultural misunderstandings and lost illusions which will lift spirits and make hearts soar.

Eva Birthistle (Ae Fond Kiss…, Breakfast on Pluto) and Charity Wakefield (Susanne Bier’s anticipated and upcoming Serena) are front and centre here as the leading sisters, and with a healthy dose of romance infused into the comedy-drama, Birthistle and Wakefield are joined by Christopher Simpson (Brick Lane) and Carlos Acosta (New York, I Love You), the acclaimed Cuban Royal Ballet dancer in his first leading role in a feature.

Roberts is directing from a script penned by Eirene Houston (Monarch of the Glen, EastEnders), who makes her feature debut with the film.

Day of the Flowers will be released in the UK on 29th November, and in case you’ve missed it, you can catch the trailer beneath the new UK quad poster below.
