Trailer of Deepa Mehta’s “Funny Boy released (Video)

Ava DuVernay’s ARRAY Releasing has dropped the first trailer and poster image for Deepa Mehta’s “Funny Boy.”

On Thursday, “Funny Boy” was announced as Canada’s entry to the 2021 Oscars, in the international feature film category.

The film is based on the best-selling 1994 coming-of-age novel by Canadian-Sri Lankan author Shyam Selvadurai that won the Lambda Literary Award for gay fiction. Mehta co-wrote the screenplay with Selvadurai.

Shot on location and set in Sri Lanka in the 1970s and 1980s, “Funny Boy” explores the sexual awakening of a young boy named Arjie (portrayed by Arush Nand and Brandon Ingram).
