A24 have released the official trailer for the upcoming drama Zola.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
The film is based on an infamous 148-tweet Twitter thread from A’Ziah King. Zola meets a sex worker named Stefani at a restaurant where Zola waitresses, and the two immediately bond over pole dancing. Only a day after they exchange numbers, Stefani invites Zola on a cross-country road trip, where the goal is to make as much money as possible dancing in Florida strip clubs. Zola agrees, and suddenly she is trapped in the craziest, most unexpected trip of her life, partaking in a wild two-day trip with Stefani, her boyfriend Derrek, and Stefani’s violent pimp, X.
The film is directed by Janicza Bravo, who co-wrote the screenplay with Jeremy O.Harris, and stars Taylour Paige, Riley Keough, Nicholas Braun, Ari’el Stachel, Colman Domingo, Jason Mitchell, Nelcie Souffrant and Nasir Rahim.
