Amazon Studios have released the official trailer for the upcoming drama film Selah and the Spades from writer/director Tayarisha Poe.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
In the closed world of an elite Pennsylvania boarding school, the Haldwell, the student body is run by five factions. Seventeen-year-old Selah Summers runs the most dominant group, the Spades, with unshakeable poise, as they cater to the most classic of vices and supply students with coveted, illegal alcohol and pills. Tensions between the factions escalate, and when Selah’s best friend/right hand Maxxie becomes distracted by a new love, Selah takes on a protégée, enamoured sophomore Paloma, to whom she imparts her wisdom on ruling the school. But with graduation looming and Paloma proving an impressively quick study, Selah’s fears turn sinister as she grapples with losing the control by which she defines herself.
The film stars Lovie Simone, Gina Torres, Celeste O’Connor, Jharrel Jerome, Jesse Williams, Ana Mulvoy-Ten, Benjamin Breault, Evan Roe, Cody Sloan and Rae Bell.
Selah and the Spades is set to be available on Prime Video from the 17th April 2020.
