Mary Elizabeth Winstead & Common star in All About Nina trailer

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

The Orchard has debuted a new trailer and poster for the upcoming comedy drama ALL ABOUT NINA, a film written and directed by RAISING VICTOR VARGAS co-writer Eva Vives. The movie stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as an up-and-coming comedian who meets a tall, dark stranger that changes her perspective on love, transforming her bold journey into the New York City comedy scene into something she never expected.

Here's the official synopsis:

Nina Geld is an up-and-coming comedian in New York City. She’s funny, smart and has worked hard to build a career for herself in the male-dominated world of stand-up. When it comes to romantic relationships though, Nina’s life is a mess. When we meet her, she has picked up a random guy in a bar and brought him home, only to find Joe, a married policeman, waiting for her against her wishes. Unable to stand up for herself, Nina sleeps with Joe again, bringing up old issues of self-hatred. Nina decides to focus on work and later gets Larry Michaels, producer of the legendary television show, Comedy Prime, to come see Nina’s stand-up. Amazingly, he asks Nina to audition! She will need to create characters/impersonations and move to LA to audition. In LA, she meets Rafe Hines, a dream-come-true, quintessential good-guy who makes all of Nina feel good. But when Joe shows up in LA unexpectedly, Nina has to deal with her past. She has a breakdown on stage and reveals a history of abuse that has driven her reckless behavior. Finally confronting the truth in such a public setting has terrifying and unexpectedly liberating consequences.

Starring alongside Winstead in Vives' biting comedy are Common (JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2, SUICIDE SQUAD), Chace Crawford (TV's GOSSIP GIRL, THE COVENANT), Clea DuVall (ARGO, THE FACULTY), Kate Del Castillo (THE BOOK OF LIFE, UNDER THE SAME MOON), and Beau Bridges (THE FABULOUS BAKER BOYS, MAX PAYNE), among others.

In addition to the trailer, The Orchard also released a new poster for the film, which you can see for yourself below.
