After premiering at the the 2019 BFI London Festival, Verve Picture’s ‘REAL’ has dropped a new trailer featuring impressive performances from rising stars Pippa Bennett-Warner (‘MotherFatherSon’, ‘Harlots’) and Aki Omoshaybi (Burning Men).

Actor turned writer-director, Aki Omoshaybi makes his directorial debut on the film which follows two twenty-somethings navigating their past struggles and growing feelings for one another in this authentic and touching love story.

An unremarkable newsagents sits between a courthouse and a business centre. It’s here that sparks fly between well-dressed Kyle (Aki Omoshaybi) and the equally poised Jamie (Pippa Bennett-Warner). Yet despite their composed outward appearances, both are struggling to move from hardships they would rather keep hidden. As their feelings for one another blossom, these difficult pasts resurface, threatening their relationship before it has really even begun.
