The first official trailer for Aml Ameen’s directorial debut, Boxing Day, has arrived!

Due for release on December 3, Boxing Day is a Christmas-themed romantic comedy that follows Melvin (played by Aml Ameen) as he introduces his American girlfriend Lisa (played by Aja Naomi King) to his British-Caribbean family. However, things get a bit complicated when the couple bump into Melvin’s ex-girlfriend Georgia (Leigh-Anne Pinnock). The film also features a cameo from none other than Zeze Millz.

The official synopsis for the film reads: “Melvin, a British author living in America, returns home to London for the holidays to introduce his American fiancé (Lisa) to his eccentric British-Caribbean family. Their relationship is put to the test, as she discovers the world Melvin left behind revolves around his ex-girlfriend (Georgia), who is now an international pop star!”

Boxing Day is the directorial debut for Aml Ammen, who’s most known for starring in hit films such as Kidulthood and Yardie.

“I made this film because I love Rom-Coms and I’ve always wanted to see the diversity of the British experience reflected on the big screen,” Ameen wrote on Instagram. “The fun, the swag, the laughs and the good times. It’s a film for EVERYONE to enjoy.”
