Universal Pictures has released the trailer for its upcoming indie comedy Doula starring Troian Bellisario and Chris Pine.
Directed by Cheryl Nichols, Doula follows pregnant couple Deb (Bellisario) and Silvio (Arron Shiver) are expecting their first child after months of dating. 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.
Alongside Pine who stars as Deb’s doctor, the film also includes Amanda Walsh, Ally Maki, Elyse Levesque, Alex McKenna, and Robert Baker. Pine also helped produce the film through his new production company Barry Linen Motion Pictures, marking it as the first feature film project. He produced in association with Vacation Theory and Universal Pictures Content Group.
Doula will be available to rent and own in the U.S. on all major digital platforms starting June 28.
