The trailer, released Friday, kicks off with Stanfield saying to Rae, “Wondering if it’s not too early in the night to kiss you.”
“It wasn’t too early,” the “Insecure” creator replies, shortly after the two share a kiss.
“The Photograph,” set to release on Valentine’s Day, centers around Mae Morton (Rae), who embarks on a journey to uncover details about the early life of her famed photographer mother who unexpectedly dies, a film description read.
During her journey, Rae finds an unexpected romance with Michael Block (Stanfield), who’s a rising-star journalist.
“The Photograph” is directed and written by Stella Meghie (“Everything, Everything”) and produced by Will Packer (“Girls Trip”), with his producing partner, James Lopez. Meghie and Rae serve as executive producers.
The movie’s cast also includes actors Chanté Adams, Lil Rel Howery and Y’lan Noel.
Packer celebrated the movie’s upcoming release on Twitter Friday.
“I can FINALLY give you guys a glimpse of the new movie we’ve been working on!” he wrote. “This Valentines Day will be something special.”
