Tribeca Film announced it has acquired all U.S. rights to Neil LaBute’s enigmatic relationship drama ‘Some Velvet Morning‘ starring Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve. The film, written and directed by LaBute and produced by Tim Harms, Daryl Freimark, Michael Corrente, Trent Othick, and David Zander, had its World Premiere at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and will be released theatrically and via on-demand platforms this winter.
‘Some Velvet Morning’ introduces us to Fred (Stanley Tucci) who arrives at the doorstep of his beautiful young mistress Velvet (Alice 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. A return to form for writer/director Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men, Your Friends and Neighbors), Some Velvet Morning is an astutely written portrait of a very modern romance. Tucci and Eve’s nuanced and complex performances, paired with LaBute’s wordplay, create an intriguing drama.
