ABOUT THE FILM

Ava, a classroom assistant, and Ali, a landlord and failed DJ, are brought together by a series of chance encounters. Despite each having a close-knit group of family and friends, Ali and Ava are fundamentally lonely souls who initially unite over a love of music, but soon realise that this is the chance for something more.

✭✭✭✭ Barnard triumphs in presenting a romance tale that is deeply grounded, yet in its well-matched leads and heartfelt story, still possesses the magic required to sweep the audience off its feet
-- Cheyenne Bunsie, Little White Lies

✭✭✭✭ ALI & AVA is a vibrant work that uses the transcendent power of song to turn a streetwise tale into a diegetic musical, with genuinely surprising results
-- Mark Kermode, The Observer
