Back in May, we were given our first look at the pandemic-inspired drama Together starring James McAvoy (X-MenSplit) and Sharon Horgan (CatastropheMilitary Wives). Now, we finally have a release date for the film and a teaser trailer to go along with it!

Directed by Stephen Daldry (The CrownBilly Elliot) and written by Dennis Kelly (UtopiaPulling), Together is the hilarious and heartbreaking story of a husband and wife in the UK who are forced to re-evaluate themselves and their relationship through the reality of the COVID-19 lockdown, starting in March of 2020 until present day.

Watch the teaser below.

McAvoy’s character, who is known as “He,” is a self employed, self-made man who runs a boutique computing consultancy. In light of the pandemic, he’s been forced to furlough his staff and take up growing vegetables — something he’s very proud of. Horgan’s character, “She,” is a charity worker, a co-ordinator for all of Europe at a refugee charity. She’s the daughter of a dentist father and an “old socialist” mother — the only grandparent still around. Up until now, their 10-year-old son Artie (Samuel Logan) is the one thing that’s kept the two together.

Speaking about the film, writer Dennis Kelly said, “Together is about a couple who totally hate each other, but have somehow found a way of existing together by not talking to, thinking about, noticing, communicating with or being in the same room as each other — then lockdown happens. It’s about how humans negotiate their shared experiences when they think they have nothing in common other than staying alive, and it’s about how you can hate what you love and love what you hate. And Sharon Horgan and James McAvoy are brilliant in it.”

Together is a Shoebox Films and Sonia Friedman Productions film for BBC Two and BBC Film, produced by Guy Heeley (Locke, Denial) and Sonia Friedman (Uncle VanyaThe Dresser). 

Together will be available to stream via BBC iPlayer on June 17.
