Studiocanal has released the trailer for Wicked Little Letters, its upcoming black comedy mystery, which stars Olivia Colman and Jessie Buckley. The film is slated to arrive in U.K. theaters on February 23, 2024.
“A 1920s English seaside town bears witness to a dark and absurd scandal in this riotous mystery comedy,” reads the synopsis. “The film follows two neighbours: deeply conservative local Edith Swan and rowdy Irish migrant Rose Gooding. When Edith and fellow residents begin to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, foul-mouthed Rose is charged with the crime. The anonymous letters prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues. However, as the town’s women – led by Police Officer Gladys Moss – begin to investigate the crime themselves, they suspect that something is amiss, and Rose may not be the culprit after all.”
