Apple TV has released the latest trailer for the drama film, Fancy Dance, featuring the directorial debut of Erica Tremblay and starring Lily Gladstone and Isabel Deroy-Olson. Fancy Dance, from Apple Original Films, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2023

Gladstone stars as Jax, a woman scraping by on the Seneca-Cayuga reservation on Oklahoma, who has cared for her niece Roki (Deroy-Olson) since her sister’s disappearance. At the risk of Jax losing custody to Roki’s grandfather, Frank (Shea Whigham), Jax and Roki hit the road and scour the backcountry to track down Roki’s mother in time for an upcoming powwow. The cast also includes Ryan Begay, Crystle Lightning, Audrey Wasilewski.

The film’s synopsis reads: “Following her sister’s disappearance, Jax and her niece Roki must stick together. Desperate to keep what’s left of their family intact, Jax and Roki defy the law and hit the road on a journey to the Grand Nation Powwow in Oklahoma City .. What begins as a search gradually turns into a far deeper investigation into the complexities and contradictions of indigenous women moving through a colonized world while at the mercy of a failed justice system.”

Fancy Dance opens in select theaters June 21 and will start streaming June 28 on Apple TV+; you can watch the trailer – here.
