Based on a short story by the author of Let the Right One In, John Ajvide Lindqvist, director Ali Abbasi‘s Border has been a massive hit on the festival scene, winning the prestigious Un Certain Regard award at Cannes earlier this year. Neon will be releasing the film on October 26, and they’ve premiered the must-watch trailer this week.
In Border, a boldly unique fantasy love story…
“After a customs officer develops a strange attraction to the suspect she’s investigating, the case’s revelations soon call into question her entire existence.”
Border is the second feature from Iranian-born Danish director Abbasi, who co-wrote the screenplay with Isabella Eklöf, in collaboration with Lindqvist.
