Nida Manzoor’s Polite Society trailer presents us with a merry mix of sisterly affection, parental disappointment and bold action.
British television writer and director Nida Manzoor pulls no punches with her new film Polite society. This sumptuous, colorful and lively martial arts the film will change how some people see high society, not knowing if a human-destroying machine is hiding among the ranks. Manzoor’s Polite society the trailer presents us with a joyous mix of sisterly affection, parental disappointment and bold action. It’s a preview that’s as exciting as it is beautiful, and we’re counting down the days until the movie hits theaters 28 April 2023.
That Polite society trailer focuses on Ria Khan who believes she must save her older sister Lena from her impending marriage. After enlisting the help of her friends, Ria attempts to pull off the most ambitious wedding heists in the name of independence and sisterhood.
Manzoor wrote and directed Polite society with Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Olivier Kaempfer and John Pocock producing. The flashy, fierce and fun-loving movie stars Priya Kansara, Ritu Arya, Nimra Bucha, Akshay Khanna, Seraphina Beh and Ella Bruccoleri.
Polite society derived from Focus functions and is an official 2023 Sundance Choice of film festival. JoBlo’s Chris Bumbray is hitting Sundance this year and plans to see Manzoor’s film along with a number of other features.
Polite society shares DNA with Manzoor’s We Are Lady Parts, a television series focusing on a group of Muslim women in the United Kingdom who confront the expectations placed on them by aspects of their culture. Anjana Vasan, Sarah Kameela Impey, Juliette Motamed, Faith Omole and Lucie Shorthouse star as members of an all-female Muslim punk band looking to change their lot in life.
That Polite society the trailer gives me goosebumps. I love experiencing action films from different cultures and Manzoor’s hard-hitting heist film looks fun, funny and visually stunning. I’m looking forward to seeing the cute movements, flowing costumes and tightly written character chemistry of the cast. I don’t go to the theater much, but I will make a concerted effort to experience this exciting action player on the big screen.
