George Mackay and Nathan Stewart Jarrett star in LGBTQ+ thriller Femme, and the first trailer for the film has landed.

Earlier this month, we published a feature on how George Mackay found himself starring in three films which hit cinemas on the same day in 2013. Since then, he’s continued to pick an eclectic range of projects, perhaps most notably taking the lead in Sam Mendes’ ambitious single shot wartime drama 1917.

Femme is his next film, and it’s now weeks away from release in the UK. The synopsis for it reads as follows…

With his performances as Aphrodite Banks, Jules has a place among London’s celebrated drag artists. One night after a show, he steps out to get some cigarettes and is brutally attacked by a guy out with his blokes. Although Jules is able to recover physically, he withdraws from the outside world, traumatised. Months later, he recognises his attacker by chance in a gay sauna. Without make-up and wrapped only in a towel, Jules is able to approach the other man incognito and find out who he is. He begins an affair with the closeted homosexual Preston in order to take his revenge.

Nathan Stewart-Jarrett plays Jules opposite Mackay as his attacker. Aaron Heffernan, John McCrea, Nima Taleghani, Antonia Clarke and Moe Bar-El complete the impressive ensemble cast.

Making their feature directorial debut are Sam H Freeman and Ng Choon Ping, who also wrote the screenplay, adapting it from their BAFTA nominated 2021 short film of the same name (a short film we covered in our magazine around the time of its release. Makers of short films – get in touch with us!)

Femme will be released in UK cinemas on the 1st December.
