Some Velvet Morning

Synopsis: 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.

This dryness is like hanging in the

back of my throat. Can't get rid of it.

Do you feel sick or anything? Maybe you caught

something recently and it's just starting to...

No, that's not it. No. Thank

you, though.

I think I'm gonna go outside and

get a little fresh air.

Sure. Go ahead. I do have to get

ready in a minute, but...

Yeah. You said that.

So, you're going out?

- I am this morning.

- Where to?

You know, day off and... I don't

one like you.

We can't all be lawyers, right?

There would be nobody left to


So you're going out. You're

going shopping.

Yeah. Something like that. You

know, seeing friends.


- But nothing specific or...?

- No, I didn't mean that.

Yeah, somewhat specific. Lunch.


Yes. Believe it or not, Fred, there are people

who are expecting to hear from me soon.

I'm not calling you a liar. I

was simply asking a question.

What about you? What about this?

Yeah, I know, I know. I can't

even wrap my head around it.

- It's wild.

- I know.

It is and I just...

Can you sit down?

- No, Fred, we are...

- Please, just sit.

- But I'm fine.

- Sit! Sit!

I'm sorry, but it's very uncomfortable

you just standing there.

- It's like you're timing me or something.

- I'm not, I promise.

Sit down. I mean, I know, like,

rationally you're not.

It just feels like you're, you

know, like...

...just keeping me on edge.

That's all. Okay?

- I'm sorry.

- It's okay. It's fine.

It just felt like you we're

trying to, you know...

Thank you.

I'm sitting. Now we can talk.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean...
