Holly loves Rob and tries to help him through his grief – even if it means contending with his dead girlfriend Nina, who comes back, bloody and broken, every time they make love.
Premiering at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival, we now have the first trailer for Chris Blaine and Ben Blaine’s Nina Forever, starring Abigail Hardingham, Cian Barry, Fiona O’Shaughnessy, Elizabeth Elvin, David Troughton.
The festival trailer opens with a clip that’s highlighted by super gross sound effects. It’s followed by a bloody montage of shots that definitely pimp out this “fucked up fairy tale”.
“Holly wants to save Rob, has fallen in love with him. She is training to be a paramedic and works a dead end job in a supermarket where Rob is the only remarkable thing; lost and angry since the death of his girlfriend Nina.
Drawn into a relationship, the first time they’re in bed together so is Nina. A tangled and bloody mess of broken limbs, she is very much dead but still here, still talking, still angry…
However Holly doesn’t freak out and run – she is determined to be the one who heals Rob’s wounds. She can deal with the dead girl sharing their bed, their lives, their minds. If it’s what Rob needs, it’s what Holly will do, whatever the consequences…“
Nina Forever will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival March 14, with additional screenings March 17 and 20.
