Watch Natey Jones and Alexandra Burke in the Pretty Red Dress trailer

Today, BFI Distribution released the official trailer and poster for PRETTY RED DRESS, the debut feature from writer and director Dionne Edwards. Natey Jones and the chart-topping singer and West End actor Alexandra Burke star in this bold and uplifting family drama which opens in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 16 June 2023.

Travis (Natey Jones) has just been released from prison and finds everything has changed while he’s been gone. While girlfriend Candice (Alexandra Burke) is on the up and auditioning to star in a musical, teenage daughter Kenisha (Temilola Olatunbosun) is struggling in school and her relationship with her mum is tense. When Travis buys Candice her dream dress for the audition to smooth over the family’s problems he ends up creating even more… As secrets and desires threaten to spill out, Travis is forced to re-examine who he is and how he wants to be perceived in the world.

PRETTY RED DRESS is written and directed by Dionne Edwards. It is produced by Georgia Goggin for Teng Teng Films, with financing from the BFI, awarding National Lottery funding, and BBC Film, in association with Magellanic Media Ltd with support from Great Point Media. The film was developed with BBC Film, the BFI and the Sundance Institute.
