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
This film was named after the name of a song of the same name named "Some Velvet Morning" written by Lee Hazlewood and originally recorded as a duet by Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra for her 1967 album Movin' with Nancy. See more »
[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 ...

Review: What a strange but we'll made movie which is based around a conversation between 2 people, about there relationship. The only reason why I gave this movie a chance was because of Stanley Tucci, who usually makes good movies, and after seeing this film, I'm glad that I put it on my rental list. Right from the beginning I didn't have a clue were the movie was going or were it was going to end up. The twist near the end was brilliant and the chemistry between the two characters was believable and emotional in parts. It made me laugh how Stanley Tucci just wouldn't leave the girls house and how he kept picking at everything that was said. I'm sure that there are many couples that can relate to this situation which is why it makes it so realistic and I've got to take my hat off to the actors who done extremely well with such a small project. Anyway, i enjoyed this small budget movie which kept me extremely entertained throughout. Enjoyable!
Round-Up: It's such a shame that small budget movies like this, get overlooked! Anyway, you might recognise Alice Eve from Star Trek Into Darkness and Men In Black 3 but she isn't a household name. She put in a great performance in her role and she held her own next to Stanley Tucci who has starred in many top movies. Tucci was great in a Devil Wears Prada and he's starred in many big budget movies like Transformers and the Hunger Games franchise. Together, they were brilliant in this film but because of its small distribution and terrible worldwide gross, it didn't get the recognition that it deserved.
Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: $6,000 (Terrible!)
I recommend this movie to people who are into there deep dramas about a man who turns up unannounced, on his ex-lovers doorstep expecting to rekindle there relationship. 6/10
