Co-starring Michael Nyqvist, Justin Long, Emmanuelle Devos, and Rosanna Arquette, the directorial debut my Matthew Ross follows a Las Vegas chef who falls into a relationship with an enigmatic young woman. Here’s the official synopsis: 

Frank is a brooding, staunch Las Vegas chef who always focused his energy into his culinary talents—until he meets Lola, a young and beautiful enigma. Together, Frank and Lola build an intense relationship that saves each other from their mutual despair. Cracks begin to show after Lola suddenly cheats on Frank, which leads to Frank’s evolving mistrust of Lola and a growing obsession with an imposing man from her past. As Frank is given the chance to cook for a famed Parisian restaurateur, he is overcome by extreme thoughts of betrayal, causing him to seek revenge and answers. But what he learns about Lola is not black and white, and trust gives way to a web of deceit.

“Frank & Lola” has its first screening at Sundance on January 27th at 9:45 PM. Watch below. [Deadline]
