Jessie Buckley, Jeremy Allen White and Riz Ahmed find themselves caught in a love triangle in the new Apple film “Fingernails,” which debuted its first trailer Tuesday morning.
Directed by Christos Nikou and produced by Cate Blanchett, the sci-fi film is set in a not-so-distant future. The story follows Anna (Buckley) and Ryan (White) who use a mathematical, machine-determined proceudre to determine if they are truly in love.
Luke Wilson plays Duncan, who heads up the Love Insitute. Anna declares she wants to work at the Institute because “Ginger Spice” studied there. She finds herself mentored by Amir, played by Ahmed. And the more time she spends around Amir and at the lab, she finds herself asking him, and herself “Is it possible that one person could be in love with two people at the same time?”
In addition to Blanchett, the film’s producers are Coco Francini, Andrew Upton, Christos Nikou and Lucas Wiesendanger, and executive producers are Glen Basner, Milan Popelka, Alison Cohen, Ashley Fox, Kevin Lafferty and Jerome Duboz. The film was co-written by Nikou, Sam Steiner and Stavros Raptis; cinematography was done by Marcell Rév (“Euphoria”).
“Fingernails” will be Nikou’s English-language debut. Blanchett reached out to Nikou after seeing his directorial debut “Apples” at the Venice Film Festival, asking if she could play a part in his next project. After informing Blanchett he did not have a role in mind for Blanchett, she asked if she could produce the film. “We realized how much we share exactly the same passion about cinema,” Nikou told Variety.
The film opens in New York and Los Angeles theaters on Oct. 27. “Fingernails” will premiere globally on Apple TV+ and play in additional select theaters on Nov. 3.
