The terrific British feature Our Ladies will finally be with us at the end of August – and it’s very, very much worth the wait.
Sony Pictures has been a company not shy about sending films straight to video on demand services over the last 18 months or so, with cinemas closed for a good chunk of that time. Which makes it all the more interesting that it’s held out for a release date for this one, a small-ish British movie that first debuted at 2019’s London Film Festival.
The movie in question is Our Ladies, directed by Michael Caton-Jones and based on Alan Warner’s book The Sopanos, it follows a group of Catholic schoolgirls in the 1990s, from a small town in Scotland. They’re taken for a day trip to Edinburgh to take part in a choir competition, but it’d be fair to say that other pursuits are of more interest to them: drinking, partying, frolicking.
It’s a really excellent movie this one, and we’re really glad that Sony has held out for the big screen for it. With a cast featuring Tallulah Greive, Abigail Lawrie, Sally Messham, Eve Austin, Rona Morrison, Marli Siu and Kate Dickie, Our Ladies will be in UK cinemas from August 27th.
We’ll leave you with a trailer for it. And this is a film really, really worth seeking out…
