Hulu has released the official trailer for its upcoming movie Wildhood, directed by Wolfe Video.
The coming-of-age LGBTQIA+ drama takes place in a rural east-coast trailer park and follows Link (Phillip Lewitski), who lives with his toxic father and younger half-brother Travis (Avery Winters-Anthony). According to the official synopsis, “WWhen Link discovers his Mi’kmaw mother could still be alive, it lights a flame and they make a run for a better life. On the road, they meet Pasmay (Joshua Odjick), a pow wow dancer drawn to Link. As the boys journey across Mi’kma’ki, Link finds community, identity and love in the land where he belongs”.
The trailer gives viewers a glimpse at the movie action and shows some of the positive reviews the movie received, such as “Nuanced performances” (by Film Speak), “Breaks new ground” (by Complex), “You’ve never seen anything like Wildhood” (by Xtra), “a moving coming-of-age story from a promising director” (by The Hollywood Reporter), and “a long-overdue step for Indigenous representation in cinema” (by UK Film Review).
The song used in the trailer is “Wildhood, Pt. II” by Neil Haverty.
Wildhood, which got 6 Canadian Screen Award nominations, including Best Motion Picture, Best Director and more, will be available for streaming on Hulu starting June 24.
