Backspot: New trailer has dropped

If a film about lesbian cheerleaders sounds like your kind of thing, then you'll probably want to add Backspot to your watch-list.

This is a drama that gives us the story of Riley (Devery Jacobs) a cheerleader who gets offered the chance to join an all-star squad, the Thunderhawks.

Her coach Eileen McNamara (Evan Rachel Wood), is ruthless in her attempts to push Riley to reach her full potential – even if there’s an injury or two along the way.

Riley must navigate the pressures of being an athlete on the brink of superstardom, while trying to get her crippling anxiety under control.

Plus, she’s got a relationship with fellow cheerleader Amanda (Kudakwashe Rutendo) to maintain.

Directed by D. W. Waterson, the film is produced by Pageboy Productions - the production company of Elliot Page. It's scheduled for release on 31 May.
