Nida Manzoor’s action-comedy hybrid also stars Nimra Bucha, Seraphina Beh, Ella Bruccoleri, Shobu Kapoor, Shona Babayemi, and Jeff Mirza. In addition to directing the film, Manzoor also wrote its screenplay. Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, John Pocock, and Olivier Kaempfe serve as producers. We can’t officially confirm the stunt people responsible for bringing the trailer’s sick moves to the screen, but we tip our hats to them all the same.
“Polite Society” premieres at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival on Friday, January 20, and will screen for four additional days. Afterward, the film will hit U.K. theaters on April 7, 2023, before finally arriving on U.S. screens three weeks later on April 28. Check out Focus Features’ official synopsis for the film below:
“A merry mash up of sisterly affection, parental disappointment and bold action, ‘Polite Society’ follows martial artist-in-training 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 of all wedding heists in the name of independence and sisterhood.”
