Get a First Look at Neil LaBute’s ‘Some Velvet Morning’
The last Neil LaBute film that I found myself particularly drawn to in a major way was over ten years ago with his 1998 biting ensemble drama, Your Friends & Neighbors. But 2013 looks to be an interesting year for the playwright, screenwriter, and director who has two films premiering throughout the upcoming festivall curcuit. With Some Girl(s), which he penned for director Daisy von Scherler Mayer, ansd Some Velvet Morning, which he’s written and directed, I’m excited to see how both films unfold and if they pack that sharp LaBute edge I’ve been missing.
Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival next month, Some Velvet Morning stars the wonderfully seasoned Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve and today, we’ve got a first look at the feature with a new set of stills. The official synopsis reads:
Fred arrives at Velvet’s doorstep, suitcases in tow. He tells her that he has finally left his wife to be with her, news to Velvet since she has not seen him in years and is now friends with Fred’s recently married son. As Fred’s hopes crash to earth during a conversation brimming with passion, remorse, humor and anger, the twisted heart of a fascinating relationship is revealed. Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve star in this spirited living room drama.
