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. Written by Tribeca Film

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 ...

A cruel trick.
10 August 2014 | by thomasshahbazSee all my reviews

This film is masterfully pulled off... great acting, visuals, everything. Unfortunately, in my opinion it fits into a category of the "Irreversible" ilk, where you are made to watch something drawn-out and punishing, for the sole purpose of a "reveal" that everything is not as it seems (this film) or there is something more to it all which makes it even more punishing (this film and Irreversible). As another reviewer has said, it's not entertaining.

Sadly, the comedy of Neil LaBute's successes is lacking here, unless you consider the ending to be a joke. If it is, it's not funny.

I caught a glimpse of this cruel-for-cruelty's-sake side of LaBute when reading the short story about a murdered prostitute in his book, "Seconds of Pleasure", a story which I'd be surprised to see make it into the upcoming film version thereof.
