The trailer for the highly anticipated sci-fi romance feature Fingernails has finally released, courtesy of Apple Original Films. The second feature from director-writer Christos Nikou, known for his acclaimed debut Apples, stars Jessie Buckley, Riz Ahmed, Jeremy Allen White and Luke Wilson.
In Fingernails, Anna (Buckley) and Ryan (White) have found true love. It’s been proven by a controversial new technology to determine ultimate compatibility in romantic relationships. There’s just one problem: Anna still isn’t sure. When she then takes a position at a love testing institute, she further questions her connection with her supposed soulmate as she gets to know her co-worker Amir (Ahmed).
“I founded this institute to take the risk out of love,” says Duncan (Wilson), company founder and Anna’s employer, in the trailer. “No more uncertainty, no more wondering if you’ve chosen the right partner, no more divorce.”
“Fingernails” is co-written by Nikou, Stavros Raptis and Sam Steiner, and is produced by Nikou, Cate Blanchett, Andrew Upton, Coco Francini, and Lucas Wiesendanger.
Fingernails premiered at Telluride Film Festival to positive reviews, and soon receives a limited theatrical release from October 27th before making its streaming debut on Apple TV+ on November 3rd.
