A deep and sexy trailer has been released by Lionsgate UK for the BFI Flare Festival opener, The Pass.

THE PASS is a British drama from debut Director Ben A. Williams, starring Russell Tovey (Looking, Being Human, The History Boys) and Arinze Kene and is adapted for the screen by John Donnelly from his hit play first presented at the Royal Court Theatre. THE PASS is produced by renowned British film producer Duncan Kenworthy (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually, The Eagle).

THE PASS is the story of three very different nights over 10 years in the life of a Premier League Footballer. Jason (Russell Tovey) is at the beginning of his career, and on the night before his first big international match he and long-time friend and team-mate Ade (Arinze Kene) share a hotel room, trying to beat the inevitable pre-match tensions with locker-room banter and teenage high-jinks. Out of nowhere, Jason kisses Ade. The emotional repercussions of this pass and the decisions that follow on and off the pitch have a major impact on every aspect of the public and private lives of both men across the next decade, in a sporting world where image is everything.

The cast includes Hollyoaks heart-throb Nico Mirallegro and theatre and TV actress Lisa McGrillis. Tovey, McGrillis and Mirallegro all reprise the roles they originally performed on stage.

THE PASS will be released in the UK by Lionsgate Films on December 9th

Tickets are on sale to the 60th BFI London Film Festival from today at 10am. For ticket enquiries, please visit:
