Some Velvet Morning

Two-hander character study from writer/director Neil LaBute, starring Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve as ex-lovers locked in an unnerving game of emotional cat and mouse. 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. Hailed as a return to form for LaBute, Some Velvet Morning is a stripped down look at love and obsession shot all in one location.

While there's much to admire in how Mr. Tucci and Ms. Eve perform Mr. LaBute's artful, apocalyptic duet, this is one seriously out-of-date tune.

Absorbing and enraging, sure to spark debate both about its meaning and its method.
