Seize Them is a comedic period piece

This isn’t a drama. What you’re getting is pure comedy, which shouldn’t be surprising with a movie led by Sex Education’s Aimee Lou Wood and Derry Girls’s Nicola Coughlan. Nick Frost and James Acaster are also in the movie, which gives away the comedic style. If you love the likes of Hot Fuzz and Shawn of the Dead, you’re sure to enjoy this movie.

It follows Queen Dagan, who finds herself at the mercy of her people. The problem is her people hate her. Humble Joan leads a rebellion against the queen, and it’s clear that this queen isn’t able to fight her own battles. So, she runs from her castle and fakes her death in the hope that she can find a way to get her throne back.

Is there anyone who is on her side? She gets a chance to hear from the people about what they really think of her. She also experiences the way that her people live, and hopefully realizes that it’s not surprising they don’t like her.

It looks like a lot of fun based on the trailer. Get ready to sit back and laugh your way through a queen who loses her kingdom and has a lot to learn.

Seize Them is out in theaters on Friday, April 5.
