As seen in the trailer, “Fancy Dance” is a thriller about a young woman and her Aunt who are searching for a missing woman. However, when the police get involved, the two women are forced apart, throwing everything into jeopardy. The film stars Lily Gladstone alongside Isabel Deroy-Olson, Ryan Begay, Crystle Lightning with Audrey Wasilewski, and Shea Whigham. “Fancy Dance” is directed by Erica Tremblay, who co-wrote the script with Miciana Alise.

We saw the film at Sundance, and in our review, we said, “Tremblay honors the resilience of indigenous women who keep their culture alive, passing it down from mother to daughter, sister to sister, despite everything that keeps working against them.”

“Fancy Dance” arrives in theaters on June 21 before hitting Apple TV+ on June 28. You can watch the trailer below.

Here’s the synopsis:

Since her sister’s disappearance, Jax (Lily Gladstone) has cared for her niece Roki (Isabel Deroy-Olson) by scraping by on the Seneca-Cayuga reservation in Oklahoma. Every spare minute goes into finding her missing sister while also helping Roki prepare for an upcoming powwow. At the risk of Jax losing custody to Roki’s grandfather, Frank (Shea Whigham), the pair hit the road and scour the backcountry to track down Roki’s mother in time for the powwow. 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.
