The exclusive first UK trailer for Una - the searing drama starring Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn - has arrived.
An adaptation of David Harrower's 2005 stage play Blackbird, the film follows Mara's eponymous protagonist, a young woman who unexpectedly arrives at the workplace of older man Ray Brooks (Mendelsohn) looking for answers concerning their shared past in an abusive sexual relationship when she was just 12-years-old.
Una serves as the feature debut of theatre director Benedict Andrews who adapts from Harrower's very own screenplay.
Appearing in the film alongside Mara and Mendelsohn is the latter's Rogue One co-star Riz Ahmed, as well as Game of Thrones stars Indira Varma and Tobias Menzies who play Ellaria Sand and Edmure Tully in the HBO series.
The film has garnered acclaim following its world premiere at Telluride Festival in September 2016. The drama, financed by Film4, also played at BFI London Film Festival (LFF) last October.
Una arrives in cinemas on 1 September courtesy of Thunderbird Releasing.
