IFC Films has released the trailer for a new film titled Catch the Fair One, which is a thriller about a Native American boxer named Kaylee “K.O.” Uppashaw. This looks like a good and super intense film that’s worth checking out! The movie comes from director Josef Kubota Wladyka and producer Darren Aronofsky.
Kali Reis stars in the film as Kaylee “K.O.” Uppashaw and she also co-wrote the script. The film follows Uppashaw, “a mixed Indigenous boxer, prepares for a championship fight. Her hands are wrapped, gloves taped shut, and face greased. She’s preparing for the boxing match of her life. The crowd roars in the distance as the sounds crescendo into a fever pitch — but then Kaylee wakes up in a women’s shelter from a wishful dream of a life she once had. This is her reality. A boxer struggling to pick up the pieces of her life. After her shift working at a diner, she meets a P.I. who presents her with evidence that Weeta, her younger sister who disappeared two years ago, is possibly alive and now circulating in a trafficking network. He tells her a time and place to plug herself into this dangerous world in hopes of finding her. Kaylee agrees and sets off on a dark and treacherous journey.”
The cast also includes Daniel Henshall, Tiffany Chu, Michael Drayer, Shelito Vincent, Lisa Emery, Kimberly Guerrero, and Kevin Dunn. It will be released in US theaters and on VOD starting on February 11th, 2022.
