The unconventional romance comes to UK/ROI screens in July.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire's Noémie Merlant returns for another story of taboo romance in director Zoé Wittock's Jumbo.

In the film, Merlant plays a shy young fairground worker who falls in love with Jumbo, the park's main attraction, a giant fairground ride.

Emmanuelle Bercot, Bastien Bouillon and Sam Louwyck also star.

Jumbo is in UK/ROI cinemas and virtual cinemas (via Modern Films, Anti-Worlds, Curzon Home Cinema and BFI Player) from July 9th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

Jeanne, a shy young woman, lives at home with her uninhibited bartender mother and works the graveyard shift as a cleaner at an amusement park. Her mother wants her to meet a man, but Jeanne prefers tinkering in her bedroom with wires, light bulbs, and spare parts, creating miniature versions of theme park rides. During her late-night shifts she begins spending intimate time with the alluring new Tilt-A-Whirl ride that she decides to call Jumbo. Finding herself seduced by “his” red lights, smooth chrome, and oily hydraulics, Jeanne concludes that the thrilling new relationship she wants to pursue is with Jumbo.
