A first trailer for Karen Gillan's new coming-of-age comedy Late Bloomers has been released.

Premiered at SXSW in March 2023, the movie from director Lisa Steen sees Gillan as protagonist Louise, an aimless musician in her late 20s who's recently single and breaks her hip during a drunken night out.

She receives physical therapy for her injury and associates with elderly patients, striking an unlikely friendship with her roommate at the hospital, Antonina (Margaret Sophie Stein), a Polish lady who speaks no English.

Louise is then hired to be Antonina's caretaker, with the two women developing a bond that goes beyond age and language as they get up to all sort of shenanigans.

Alongside Gillan and Stein, Late Bloomers also stars Jermaine Fowler, Talia Balsam, Kevin Nealon and Michelle Twarowska.

Releasing in the US on June 7, the film is written by Anna Greenfield and is partly based on her personal experiences.
