When you watch the trailer for the Russo Brothers’ upcoming drama, “Cherry,” it’s clear the film focuses on the downward spiral that affects a young guy, as he deals with untreated PTSD and drug addiction. But at the heart of the film is a love story between its lead characters played by Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo.
With “Cherry” hitting Apple TV+ next week, we’re thrilled to give our readers an exclusive look at a behind-the-scenes featurette that showcases the love story that drives the emotional film. In the clip, Holland and Bravo talk about how the young love between Cherry and Emily starts well, with both falling madly in love. However, when Emily leaves Cherry, he runs away and joins the military, which leads him down a path of self-destruction.
As mentioned, “Cherry” is directed by the Russo Brothers. The film serves as their first directorial outing since the record-breaking film, “Avengers: Endgame.” “Cherry” is available in select theaters now and will arrive on Apple TV+ on March 12. You can watch the exclusive featurette below.
Here’s the synopsis:
Cherry follows the wild journey of a disenfranchised young man from Ohio who meets the love of his life, only to risk losing her through a series of bad decisions and challenging life circumstances. Inspired by the best-selling novel of the same name, “Cherry” features Tom Holland in the title role as an unhinged character who drifts from dropping out of college to serving in Iraq as an Army medic and is only anchored by his one true love, Emily (Ciara Bravo). When Cherry returns home a war hero, he battles the demons of undiagnosed PTSD and spirals into drug addiction, surrounding himself with a menagerie of depraved misfits. Draining his finances, Cherry turns to bank robbing to fund his addiction, shattering his relationship with Emily along the way. Brought to the screen in bold, gritty fashion by visionary directors Anthony and Joe Russo, Cherry is a darkly humorous, unflinching coming-of-age story of a man on a universal quest for purpose and human connection.
