WARNING: The only way to experience the full effect of Some Velvet Morning, is to walk into the film knowing nothing at all.
Now that you’ve been warned, not only did Neil LaBute give himself the challenge of working with just one location and two actors for his latest feature, Some Velvet Morning, but he also tested his ability to support one heck of a grand finale twist while also ensuring that the film in its entirety is engaging and authentic. Four years after indulging in a steamy affair, Fred (Stanley Tucci) shows up at Velvet’s (Alice Eve) door to tell her that he finally left his wife and now they can live happily ever after. In real time, LaBute peels back the layers of their relationship, unveils their darkest secrets and highlights the foundation of their lust as Fred and Velvet rekindle their romance and try to figure out if it’s possible to sustain it in the future.
