The dramatic film Where is Kyra? just unveiled a new trailer and poster in support of the film’s April theatrical release. The new trailer effectively reveals the film’s tone and spotlights stars Michelle Pfeiffer (Ant-Man and the Wasp, Murder on the Orient Express) and Kiefer Sutherland (Designated Survivor, 24: Live Another Day).
Pfeiffer and Sutherland are joined in the drama by Sam Robards (Twisted, Gossip Girl) and Suzanne Shepherd (The Sopranos, Delivering the Goods). Andrew Dosunmu (Mother of George) directed from a script by Darci Picoult, based on a story by Picoult and Dosunmu. Dosunmu and Picoult also executive produced along with Robert Halmi Jr, Erika Hampson, and Jim Reeve. David Hinojosa, Rhea Scott, and Christine Vachon served as producers.
Dosunmu’s behind the scenes team includes cinematographer Bradford Young (Academy Award nominee for Arrival), editor Oriana Soddu, production designer Lucio Seixas, and composer Philip Young.
Great Point Media and Paladin are planning an April 6, 2018 theatrical release.
The Plot: Where is Kyra? tells the story of Kyra Johnson, a middle-aged divorcee who moves into her elderly mother’s Brooklyn apartment while she looks for work and tries to get back on her feet. When her mother suddenly dies, Kyra is left without any support, both emotional and financial, and finds herself with very few options–none of them good. Despite a blossoming affair with a sympathetic neighbor (Sutherland) with struggles of his own, Kyra can’t accept that her once-tidy life has fallen apart, and she resorts to increasingly desperate measures to hold onto what little she has left.
In Where is Kyra?, Dosunmu conveys the plight of a strong-willed, capable woman who nonetheless finds herself slipping through society’s cracks, and toppling from a stable, secure life to the very edge of ruin.
