"A Stray avoids pushing its points too hard. Like the dog, it's watchful and observant without barking too much. But it's impossible to leave behind."
That's how I concluded my review of A Stray after its world premiere at SXSW earlier this year, so I'm happy to share a new trailer and poster in advance of its theatrical bow in New York at IFP Media Center on Friday, October 21, as part of the IFP Screen Forward screening series. A regional roll out throughout the U.S. will follow.
Here's a bit more about the film from my review: "In A Stray, a new film by Musa Syeed, the lead character Adan doesn't want to live live a refugee. He's portrayed by Barkhad Abdirahman, who made a notable impression as an angry modern-day pirate opposite Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips. As Adan, he is just as frustrated, but his character expresses himself in a far milder manner."
You can read my review in its entirety right here.
The poster in full is below, and the trailer is beneath that.
