Sky Is Everywhere Trailer Reveals Apple’s YA Adaptation
Apple has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming film “The Sky Is Everywhere,” directed by Josephine Decker and adapted from Jandy Nelson’s novel of the same name. The film will premiere in select theaters and worldwide on AppleTV+ on February 11.
“Once upon a time there were two sisters,” Lennie’s voiceover says as the trailer introduces us to Bailey and Lennie Walker. “The older sister preceded the younger. So the youngest always knew where to go.
Lennie – short for Lennon after John Lennon – Walker finds herself unmoored following the recent, sudden and unexpected death of her older sister Bailey. Lennie lives with his grandmother and uncle, who try to help him deal with the devastating loss.
“I lost the only person on earth who understood me,” Lennie’s voice says over a montage of memories of her and Bailey together.
As Lennie picks up the pieces of her shattered life, she meets Joe Fontaine, the school’s newcomer. Lennie and Joe form a quick bond over music, which could lead to more than friendship, but Toby Shaw, Bailey’s boyfriend, helps Lennie remember Bailey, drawing her to him in grief and mourning.
The film “Sky Is Everywhere” stars Grace Kaufman as Lennie Walker, Jacques Colimon as Joe Fontaine and Pico Alexander as Toby Shaw alongside veterans Cherry Jones as Gram and Jason Segel, who plays the eccentric Uncle Big. Supporting characters and cast include Bailey Walker (Havana Rose Liu), Lennie’s best friend Sarah (Ji-young Yoo), and Lennie’s nemesis Rachel (Julia Schlaepfer).
Produced by A24, Denise Di Novi and Margaret French Isaac on behalf of Di Novi Pictures and Josephine Decker and Allison Rose Carter on behalf of Alice the Who, the film also features an all-female production team.
