Modern Films has debuted a new trailer for ‘Luxor’ featuring Andrea Riseborough.
Set against the backdrop of the ancient Egyptian city of Luxor, the film centres on Hana, a doctor and British aid worker seeking mental peace and physical respite after an overwhelming period spent working at a clinic in Ramtha, on the Jordanian-Syrian border, where she specialised in treating victims wounded in the war in Syria. She finds solace in Luxor, where she lived in her 20s and dated an archaeologist, Sultan, who was also studying there.
As she wanders, haunted by the familiar place, Hana struggles to reconcile the choices of the past with the uncertainty of the present. She lingers through memory-filled hotel lobbies and ancient sites as she begins to grapple with her grief and her emotions from the war—but when she runs into Sultan on a ferry crossing unexpectedly, the chemistry is undeniable.
The film is British Writer-Director Zeina Durra’s follow-up feature to her 2010 debut and stars Andrea Riseborough and French-Lebanese actor, Karim Saleh.
The film is released 6th November.
