Some Velvet MorningWriter/director Neil LaBute (Death at a Funeral) looks at lust and love independent film Some Velvet Morning.

Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games) stars in the drama as Fred, an attorney leaves his wife of 24 years then turns up on the doorstep of his former mistress, Velvet (Alice Eve, Men in Black 3), four years after they’ve broken up. While Fred is happy they can finally be together, Velvet isn’t so sure she wants that — or ever wanted that.

As Fred attempts to rekindle their romance, his persistence becomes obsession.

Rated R, the 2013 movie got mixed reviews from critics and moviegoers, with some loving it (like Arizona Republic critic Bill Goodykoontz who said it’s “well worth watching and arguing over”) and others hating it (including the New York Observer‘s Rex Reed, who described it as “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.”)

Some Velvet Morning got a token release in a couple theaters and bowed on streaming before DVD.

The DVD doesn’t have any special features, but if you’re into experimental indie films, Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve are usually a safe bet for good acting at least.
