When a film’s main promotional still image has two dildos in the foreground, you kind of know what you’re getting into, especially when that film was written and directed by Neil LaBute.

In “Dirty Weekend,” two colleagues, Matthew Broderick and Alice Eve, are delayed in the Albuquerque airport. Their aimless wanderings naturally lead to intimate conversations, hidden secrets and a witty showdown. Despite the suggestive title, LaBute’s reputation for digging into primal fantasies and human instinct suggests a highbrow examination of “the ripple effects of desire.”

Yet despite the film’s description (and the dildos), from the look of this trailer, “Dirty Weekend” may also hit a few saccharin notes. LaBute isn’t just about the salacious.

“Dirty Weekend” will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival.
