A new biopic from director Zaida Bergroth tells the story of Moomins creator Tove Jansson, played by Alma Pöysti, from her creations' origin as comforting stories she told to scared children in WWII bomb shelters to her love affair with theatre director Vivica Bandler (Krista Kosonen).

Tove is in UK cinemas from July 9th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

Helsinki, 1945. The end of the war brings a new sense of artistic and social freedom for painter Tove Jansson (Alma Pöysti). While focusing her artistic dreams on painting, the enchanting tales of the ‘Moomin’ creatures she told to scared children in bomb shelters, rapidly take on a life of their own, bringing international fame and financial freedom. Her desire for liberty is put to the test, when she meets theatre director Vivica Bandler (Krista Kosonen) who ignites an electric and all consuming love in her. But while she begins to find her artistic identity she discovers the true love she yearns has to be reciprocated, and only by forging her own path can she learn to be free.
