After winning over audiences on the festival circuit last year, Terence Davies’ “Sunset Song” is finally gearing up for its stateside release with a gorgeous new trailer. Starring Agyness Deyn, Peter Mullan and Kevin Guthrie, the film is based on Scottish author Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s 1932 classic of the same name and centers on a young woman as she deals with the impending First World War.

The official synopsis reads: “‘Sunset Song’ takes place during the early years of the 20th century, with the conflicts and choices a young woman experiences reflecting the struggle between tradition and change; a struggle that continues to resonate today. Set in a rural community, the film is driven by the young heroine Chris and her intense passion for life, for the unsettling Ewan and for the unforgiving land.”

Weaving together poetic drama and strong character work, the new trailer assures Davies is back and better than ever. “Sunset Song” hits U.S. theatres on May 13.
