'Alone Together' Trailer: Katie Holmes Writes, Directs & Stars In A Pandemic Romance On July 22

Six years ago, Katie Holmes made the leap from actress to director when her feature directing debut, “All We Had,” had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2016. In that film, Holmes stars as a single mom who moves with her teenage daughter during the 2008 financial crisis. Now, Holmes returns to Tribeca this year with her sophomore film, “Alone Together,” another film that takes place in another global crisis: the COVID-19 pandemic.

Holmes stars alongside Jim Sturgess and Derek Luke in the new film, about how a botched Airbnb booking leads to unexpected intimacy between a food critic and a recently single man.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

Going upstate for a short romantic getaway to escape the pandemic in New York City, food critic June’s plans go wrong from the start. Arriving at the Airbnb in advance of her boyfriend, John, she is shocked to discover it has been double-booked by recently single Charlie. When John decides to stay in the city to take care of his parents, June has to settle in for the long haul as she realizes that the initial two weeks of the pandemic might just drag on a little bit longer than expected. As spring begins to unfold around them, June and Charlie make the most of the sudden break in their routines and develop an unexpected intimacy as they bond over their goals, ambitions and, of course, relationships.

“Alone Together” also stars Zosia Mamet and Melissa Leo. And Holmes is already filming her next picture, “Rare Objects,” about a woman working at an antique store whose past catches up with her.  

Following its premiere at Tribeca later this month, “Alone Together” gets a limited theatrical release on July 22. Then it comes out on Digital On Demand on July 29.  Watch the trailer below.
