The teaser trailer and poster have been released for the Sundance Film Festival award-winning A Real Pain starring Academy Award® nominee Jesse Eisenberg and Golden Globe® winner Kieran Culkin. The film will be in UK and Irish cinemas from 10th January 2025.

A REAL PAIN follows mismatched cousins David (Jesse Eisenberg) and Benji (Kieran Culkin) reunite for a tour through Poland to honor their beloved grandmother. The adventure takes a turn when the odd-couple’s old tensions resurface against the backdrop of their family history.

Hillary saw the film at Sundance and said it was “funny, touching and most importantly, it feels authentic.”
