Celebrated actor Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games franchise, Transformers: Age of Extinction) joins Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness, Men In Black 3) in the riveting drama, Some Velvet Morning, sizzling onto DVD June 24 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and Tribeca Film. Award-winning writer and director Neil LaBute (Possession, In The Company of Men) returns to auteur form in the astutely written portrait of a modern romance “full of intelligent and witty twists and turns” (Screen Daily) that captivates the audience from start to finish with his signature, provocative style.
Some Velvet Morning follows Fred (Tucci), an attorney who shows up unannounced on the doorstep of his former mistress Velvet (Eve) after four years apart, claiming he finally left his wife of 24 years. Fred happily insists they can finally be together, but whether or not Velvet wants that, or ever really wanted that, is up for debate. LaBute allows the audience to essentially “eavesdrop” on the couple as they spiral down a roller coaster of mixed emotions, from needy and condescending to affectionate and angry, eventually leading to an unforgettable outcome. When the games people play get out of hand, there’s no telling how things are going to end.
Synopsis: Fred (Tucci) arrives at the doorstep of his beautiful young mistress Velvet (Eve) after four years apart, claiming to have finally left his wife. But when she rejects his attempts to rekindle their romance, his persistence evolves into obsession – and a dark history between the former lovers comes into focus.
