‘Hala’ original film for Apple TV+ gets an official trailer

While the majority of the content on Apple TV+ right now is original TV shows, the streaming service will also play host to original films, too. And now we get an official trailer for one of them.

Apple TV’s official YouTube channel today uploaded the official trailer for the upcoming film Hala, which stars Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers) as Hala, a 17-year-old caught between two worlds as she struggles between personal desires and familial duties. The film also stars Jack Kilmer (The Nice Guys), Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate), and Purbi Joshi (Metro Park).

Here’s Apple’s official description of the new film, which is paired with the official trailer:

Seventeen-year-old Pakistani American teenager Hala (Geraldine Viswanathan) struggles to balance desire with her familial, cultural and religious obligations. As she comes into her own, she grapples with a secret that threatens to unravel her family. Written and directed by Minhal Baig and executive produced by Jada Pinkett Smith, ”Hala” was an official selection of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.

The new film will be available on Apple TV+ beginning Friday, December 6. Here’s the official trailer:
