Here's the official UK trailer (+ poster) for Richie Adams' The Road Dance, direct from YouTube:
Life in the Scottish Outer Hebrides is harsh - the edge of the world some call it. For the beautiful Kirsty, her love for Murdo and their shared dreams of America promise escape from the scrape of the land and a stifled destiny. But the Great War changes all when Murdo is conscripted. The night before the young men go off to battle, tragedy is set in motion as villagers swirl and sup at a "road dance." The Road Dance is both written and directed by American filmmaker Richie Adams, director of the films Inventing Adam and Of Mind and Music previously, who also works as a title designer on films. It's based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by John MacKay. Produced by Jim Kreutzer, Maryilene Blondell, and Steve Shapiro. This initially premiered at the 2021 Edinburgh Film Festival last year. Parkland Ent. already released The Road Dance in UK & Ireland cinemas in May earlier this year. No US release date is setup yet - stay tuned.
