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: What are you so angry about, Fred? So bitter. I haven't done anything.
Fred: So what? Shit happens to people who haven't done anything all the time. What does it matter? It just depends on how we deal with it, whatever lands at our feet.
Velvet: Is that right?
Fred: Yeah, that is right. That's the truth. The lesson is in the struggle. That's what makes us shine, or roll over and die like little bitches in the dirt with our guts exposed and flies shitting in our open mouths.

Very Pleasantly Surprised with a Unique Independent Film
3 May 2014 | by matthew-messinaSee all my reviews

I found this movie on Amazon, and it sounded pretty interesting, and when I saw a short running time, it made me curious.

In my experience, independent movies are either far too long, or the perfect length. Likewise, they vary from pitiful, instantly forgettable, or phenomenal, like most films I guess, however independent movies are even more difficult to analyze as there is little in between. At less than an hour and a half, I knew I wouldn't have that problem. What I watched surprised me even more and was extremely impressive.

Only two characters throughout the entire film, in one location. This is an extremely difficult task for any filmmaker, but as opposed to others with similar types of settings, this took place in real-time, even more difficult.

Alice Eve delivers another brilliant performance, who I hope will get some more starring mainstream roles soon. I loved her in She's Out of My League, and she has done a string of indies, all of which she was impressive. This film will certainly help her career.

Stanley Tucci was, for lack of a better word, Stanley Tucci. Always spot on, and will always add extra depth to whatever character he is playing.

What I loved about this film was the on-going back-and-forth between the two. There is a deep history between the characters, with anger growing between both, and a history of problems. What made this so interesting, is that it is never actually stated what the issues are, but the viewer completely understands the complexities of both characters.

I was riveted to see what was going to happen with the facts given, and those not given explicitly. The ending is perfectly executed. I thought I guessed the surprise ending, and I was right...right up until the second shocker came and my mouth was dropped wide open.

This film will stick with you. It is a great watch, and a short film, which makes it all the more satisfying. I hope this can get some more play and some buzz about it. It is certainly deserving.
