TRAILER | New Romantic Comedy THE PURSUIT OF LOVE on Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video today released the official trailer for The Pursuit of Love, a moving new romantic comedy-drama that explores friendship, love and choice in interwar England.
Written and directed by Emily Mortimer, all three episodes will air on Prime Video on Friday July 30 in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand with additional territories launching on September 1.
The pursuit of love is a romantic comedy-drama about love and friendship. Set in Europe between the two world wars, the story follows the adventures and misadventures of the charismatic and intrepid Linda Radlett, played by Lily James (Mom Mia! Here we go, Rebecca, Cinderella, Baby Driver) and her best friend and cousin Fanny Logan, played by Emily Beecham (Little Joe, Cruella).
Consumed by a desire for love and marriage, the two women are in search of the ideal husband. Their friendship is put to the test as Fanny settles for a stable life and Linda decides to follow her heart, to increasingly wild and scandalous places. As social and political divisions divide the nation, their divergent choices raise personal questions that remain intensely relevant today – questions about freedom, about love and sex, and about the mystery of the human heart.
Additional cast includes Dominic West (Thread, The Affair, Les Misérables) and Dolly Wells (Dracula, Doll & Em) as parents of Linda, Uncle Matthew and Aunt Sadie Radlett, Andrew Scott (Chip bag, Sherlock) as Lord Merlin, the Radlett’s wealthy and eccentric neighbor, Emily Mortimer (The return of Mary Poppins, the meaning of an end) as mother of Fanny, The Bolter and Beattie Edmondson (Jos, Patrick) like Louisa Radlett.
Linda and Fanny’s suitors include Assaad Bouab (Messiah, call my agent) like Fabrice de Sauveterre, Shazad Latif (Penny Dreadful, Star Trek: Discovery) like Alfred Wincham and Freddie Fox (White House Farm, La Couronne) like Tony Kroesig.
The pursuit of love premiered on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK, and will be available on Amazon Prime Video in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and certain additional territories. BBC Studios are the international distributors and have negotiated the deal with Amazon Studios.
