After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, the U.S. rights to “Some Velvet Morning” have been acquired by distribution label Tribeca Film. Directed by Neil LaBute and starring Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve, the film follows a man who arrives at the doorstep of his mistress after four years apart, claiming he has left his wife and wishes to rekindle their romance. When she rejects his attempts, his persistence quickly devolves into a dark obsession
“LaBute has a brilliant and unorthodox approach to filmmaking that captivates audiences, incites reactions and sparks dialogue,” said Geoff Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises. “’Some Velvet Morning’ is a thought-provoking and emotional ride that culminates in a gray, open-ended space, but its complexities do not overwhelm Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve’s electrifying performances, or LaBute’s acute sense of storytelling.”
The film will see a release on cable/telco and digital on-demand formats on December 10, and a limited theatrical release on December 13.
