This summer, Universal Pictures will release Doula, a new comedy film produced by Chris Pine that stars Troian Bellisario.
After months of dating, Deb (Bellisario) and Silvio (Arron Shiver) are expecting their first child. When their elderly midwife Penka passes away suddenly, Silvio makes the hasty decision to hire Penka’s son, Sascha (Will Greenberg), as their live-in doula. Deb is bewildered, as Silvio didn’t consult her before hiring. Before long, the two grow closer, and when the pregnancy nears its conclusion, Silvio feels like the odd man out.
His continued efforts to exert control over the pregnancy lead to a blow-up fight in which he forces Deb to choose between him and Sascha. Doula will be available to rent or own in the U.S. on all major digital platforms starting June 20.
Doula also stars Pine who plays Deb’s doctor, Amanda Walsh, Ally Maki, Elyse Levesque, Alex McKenna, and Robert Baker. The film is directed by Cheryl Nichols and written by Arron Shiver.
