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.

No, its fine, it's fine, it's


It just felt like you were just trying to

push me out the door, at least in your mind.

I wasn't. I wouldn't do that.

I'm not that kind of person.

I know that. I know that. I know that. I

know that now, and I'm sorry. Sorry. Sorry.

You do keep checking you watch.

Yeah, I just have somewhere to


You've made that very clear. You were not expecting me.

You've made that very clear.

I wasn't. It was a surprise.

A good one, I would have hoped.

see you.

It's nice to see you, too. It's

been a while.

- Yeah, years.

- I know.

And I did what I said I would

do, didn't I?

I stayed away.

No matter how hard it was, and it was

particularly hard at the beginning...

when we had first broken it off,


I mean, I stayed away.

- I appreciate that.

- Yeah.

I kept my promise. I mean, there were

those e-mails and those phone calls...

and the birthday gift that I sent

you, that little iPod thingy...

with your name engraved on it...

but really, for the most part...

I did what I promised you I

would do, I stayed away.

- Thank you.

- Sure.

For being a gentleman.

Well, I don't know about that...

but I did what I said I would


- Thanks.

- For a long time.


So, yeah.

That's an understatement, right?

Yeah, so, what the hell do I do


I mean, honestly, what?

You're not seriously asking my

advice on this, are you?

Kinda, yeah.

I'm not really in a good

position to answer that, Fred.

You just show up, your bags

scattered at your feet.

I don't really have answers for

a puzzle like that one.

I don't know what to say.


- I'd like to help you, but I can't.

- Yeah, no, I know. I'm not expecting you to...
