Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York has secured a June release in the UK.
Signature Entertainment has snapped up the rights to distribute the romantic comedy, which stars Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) and Elle Fanning (The Neon Demon), alongside Selena Gomez, Jude Law, Diego Luna and Liev Schreiber.
The film tells the story of college sweethearts Gatsby (Timothée Chalamet) and Ashleigh (Elle Fanning), whose plans for a romantic weekend together in the city are dashed quickly. When Ashleigh gets an assignment from the school paper to interview celebrated film director Roland Pollard (Liev Schreiber) in Manhattan, Gatsby seizes the opportunity to show small-town girl Ashleigh his favourite haunts in his home city. However, Gatsby’s well-laid plans are quickly sidetracked when Pollard whisks Ashleigh away on a head-spinning series of encounters that lead her from the director to screenwriter Ted Davidoff (Jude Law) and movie star Francisco Vega (Diego Luna).
Left to his own devices in the city, Gatsby ends up spending the day with Chan (Selena Gomez), the sharp-witted younger sister of his ex-girlfriend, attending parties and having his own life-changing conversations and encounters.
Through this series of chance meetings and comical adventures the pair discover that while you only live once, once is enough if you find the right person.
The film will premiere on iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, TalkTalk TV, Rakuten TV and Sky Store in the UK on 5th June. Here’s the trailer:
