Storyline

Fred (Stanley Tucci) arrives at the doorstep of his beautiful young mistress Velvet (Alice Eve) after four years apart, claiming to have finally left his wife. But 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. A return to form for writer/director Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men, Your Friends & Neighbors), Some Velvet Morning is an astutely written portrait of a very modern romance.

Quotes

Velvet: [to a very judgmental Fred, after she tells him he's only one of several older men she's had affairs with] ... You use what you have, Fred, and that's what I did. Chris is good with computers, and so he gets paid for that; and you're an attorney, and that's your gift, ya know. And I have tits, and I'm not sorry that I let men use me once in a while. You can try and make me feel guilty, and tell me what I did was a bad thing, but it wasn't. It wasn't for me. And you may not like it or understand ...

This was so-so, one of those films that could have been a lot better had the editing been tighter. Stanley Tucci stars as a man who surprises his former mistress (Alice Eve), claiming to have left his wife. Before too long, a dark history between the two has come into focus. And if you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you! If you enjoyed the old Austrian movies about adultery, you'll probably like this one. You've got to be a die-hard fan to embrace this one. What makes it interesting is that all the characters struggle against a system that has perpetuated many falsehoods. Final rating: 7/10.
