Movie Info

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 AND NEIGHBORS), SOME VELVET MORNING is an astutely written portrait of a very modern

With Some Velvet Morning, LaBute returns to the provocative style that made his name.

Though LaBute wrote this for the screen, I mistakenly decided that it must have originated onstage... because the oblique, heavily freighted dialogue seems too elegant and artful for a medium dominated by hacks.

A sad example of what sometimes happens when a writer of gripping stage plays controls his own independent movie to his own selfish, labored self-satisfaction.

I came away from this malevolent exercise with the sense that these two add up to little more than the sum of their awfulness.

This smallest of films marks a welcome return to the world of interpersonal miniature for the writer-director. I hope he stays here a while.

Well worth watching and arguing over.

One revelation leads to another, as well as the expected sexual confrontation, but then there's a moment of gentility, of grown-up understanding, and even, well, tenderness of a weird order. Desire, love? It's all transactional.

...a massive disappointment...

Fine acting aside, this is a story that should have remained untold.

You'll want to watch the film again immediately, and it will rattle around in your head for hours. If not longer.

Anyone game to watch two effortlessly volatile and vulnerable performers trade barbs for 83 minutes ought to give this due consideration.

[Alice Eve gives] a smooth performance and one of the few reasons to last through to the very end, even after a moment that all but invites you to bail.

December 13, 2013 Full Review Source: Metro

Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve ably trade verbal volleys but the movie feels like an acting and writing workshop more than anything else.

December 13, 2013 Full Review Source: amNewYork

The Neil LaBute movie for people who hate Neil LaBute movies -- a tightly packed, deviously well-played two-person drama about the illusions of both love and drama.

Too much method, not enough madness.
