(L-R): Actors Derren Nesbitt and Jordan Stephens star in writer-director Jamie Patterson’s drama, ‘Tucked.’

Sometimes films have the potential to deeply move audiences while watching them, and warm their hearts long after the credits have rolled. That’s certainly the case with the new drama, ‘Tucked,’ which emphasizes that people feel the most alive when they receive the painful news that they’re dying. That powerful message is showcased in the British movie’s official trailer, which was recently released by Gravitas Ventures to coincide with the feature’s U.S. distribution on VOD and digital platforms last week.

‘Tucked’ won both the Narrative Audience Award and International Narrative Feature Grand Jury Prize at Outfest 2018. It was honored with the awards after it had its world premiere during the Los Angeles film festival last July.

The drama was written and directed by Jamie Patterson. It stars Jordan Stephens, Derren Nesbitt, April Pearson and Steve Oram.

Gravitas Ventures has released the following synopsis for ‘Tucked’:

When veteran drag queen Jackie Collins (Nesbitt) receives a diagnosis with six weeks to live, all he wants to do is perform his long-running act, and behave as if all is normal. But between a surprising new friendship with a rising young queen and unfinished business with his estranged daughter, he may just have the most eventful month and a half of his life. A feel-good film with charm and humor as well as surprising insight into our evolving understanding of gender identity across generations, this marks the first queer film from prolific young British director Jamie Patterson.
