UK trailer & artwork released for historical drama ‘THE NEW BOY’ starring Cate Blanchett

Signature Entertainment has released the official UK trailer and poster artwork for the upcoming historical drama, THE NEW BOY, starring Cate Blanchett, which will be released exclusively in cinemas in the UK and Ireland on 15 March 2024.

THE NEW BOY is written and directed by Palme d’Or winning director Warwick Thornton (Samson & Delilah, Sweet Country), with music composed by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis (Blonde).

The film introduces Aswan Reid, who stars alongside Cate Blanchett (Tár, Carol), along with Deborah Mailman (The Sapphires, The Secret Life of Us) and Wayne Blair (Redfern Now, Mystery Road).

In a remote monastery in 1940s Australia, a mission for Indigenous Australian children is run by a renegade nun, Sister Eileen. A new charge is delivered in the dead of night – a boy who appears to have special powers. When the monastery takes possession of a precious relic, a large carving of Christ on the cross, the new boy encounters Jesus for the first time and is transfixed. However, the boy’s Indigenous spiritual life does not gel with the mission’s Christianity and his mysterious power becomes a threat. Sister Eileen is faced with a choice between the traditions of her faith and the truth embodied in the boy, in this story of spiritual struggle and the cost of survival.

THE NEW BOY is produced by Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton for Dirty Films, Kath Shelper for Scarlett Pictures and Lorenzo De Maio of De Maio Entertainment.
