Trailer for Oscar-winning actor Riz Ahmed’s much-anticipated sci-fi romance Fingernails it out. In addition to Ahmed, the film also stars Jessie Buckley, Jeremy Allen White, and Luke Wilson in pivotal roles.
Fingernails is set in a world where scientists have developed a test that can prove that two people are (or aren’t) in love. It then uses this oddball premise to set up a love triangle between its trio of stars — Jessie Buckley, Riz Ahmed, and Jeremy Allen White.
“Anna and Ryan have found true love. It’s been proven by a controversial new technology. There’s just one problem: Anna still isn’t sure. Then she takes a position at a love testing institute, and meets Amir,” reads the logline as per the makers.
Fingernails comes from writer-director Christos Nikou and marks his first English-language film. He has previously made the critically acclaimed Apples.
The film is co-written by Nikou, Stavros Raptis, and Sam Steiner.
In addition to Nikou, Fingernails is backed by Cate Blanchett, Andrew Upton, Coco Francini for Dirty Films, and Lucas Wiesendanger for FilmNation Entertainment.
The film is executive produced by Glen Basner, Milan Popelka and Alison Cohen, Ashley Fox, Kevin Lafferty, and Jerome Duboz.
The film will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, November 3, 2023. The film has already debuted at the 50th Telluride Film Festival back in August,
