For most audiences around the world, Berenice Marlohe came to their attention thanks to her starmaking turn in “Skyfall” as the smokey seductress Severine. She hasn’t been seen on the big screen since, mostly because she’s been too busy working. She booked a part in Terrence Malick‘s forthcoming Austin music scene-set drama, but as those movies goes, who knows if she’ll remain in the film. But more crucially, the actress is ready to show a softer side, starring opposite Anton Yelchin in the romance “5 To 7.”
The feature debut from “Mad Men” co-producer and writer Victor Levin, and co-starring Glenn Close, Frank Langella, Lambert Wilson and Olivia Thirlby, the film follows Brian (Yelchin), an aspiring novelist who has an extramarital cinq-a-sept affair with the beautiful wife of a French diplomat, Arielle (Marlohe). Cultures, world views, personal ethics and dietary preferences clash as their love deepens. And you can see the chemistry forming between the pair in the exclusive first look photo above.
“5 To 7” is headed to AFM where The Solution Entertainment Group is handling international sales. So keep your eye out for this in 2014.
