Rooney Mara Revisits a Dark Past in New Trailer for ‘Una’

Written by on July 21, 2017 


Update: A limited U.S. release has been set for October 6.

If one thought Rooney Mara being haunted by a white sheet was a tough sell, one of her other dramas is having a tougher time getting to audiences. Una, starring Mara, Ben Mendelsohn, and Riz Ahmed, is a dramatic thriller about two people forced to revisit a passionate yet illicit relationship they had years ago.

Coming from Australian theater director Benedict Andrews, marking his debut, it was finally picked up the relatively unknown Swen and Eammon Films for a release here. While it was thought it would get a summer or fall release, there’s been no word. In the meantime, we have a new trailer and poster from Thunderbird Releasing, who will release it in the United Kingdom in just over a month.

We said in our review, “The debut feature from theater veteran Benedict Andrews, Una is an astonishing success. Anchored by two exhilarating performances from Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn, the film is also harsh, moving, and extraordinarily riveting, one of the more unsettling works to play the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival and undoubtedly among the most provocative.”

Check out the trailer and poster below, both featuring our quote.

Based on David Harrower’s play ‘Blackbird’, UNA focuses on the emotionally devastating ramifications following a young woman’s attempt to track down a man from her past, unearthing long-buried secrets and desires.


Una hits U.K. theaters on September 1 and is awaiting a U.S. date.
