@ADOREMOVIE TRAILER FT. NAOMI WATTS, ROBIN WRIGHT, XAVIER SAMUEL AND JAMES FRECHEVILLE – LOOK FOR IT ON 9/6 #ADORE

    Naomi Watts and Robin Wright deliver riveting performances in ADORE, a sensual and provocative drama about two lifelong friends who find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention. An unpredictable tale of misguided love and a heartfelt celebration of the enduring nature of female friendship, the film is the English-speaking directorial debut of distinguished filmmaker Anne Fontaine (COCO BEFORE CHANEL). It is adapted for the screen by Academy Award®-winning writer Christopher Hampton (DANGEROUS LIAISONS), from a novella by Nobel Prize winner for Literature Doris Lessing.

    Set in an Australian seaside town of otherworldly beauty and shot in lush 35mm Cinemascope, ADORE establishes an aura of fable as it follows two women’s plunge into uncharted waters. Watts and Wright fearlessly engage with both the physical and psychological components of the story, capturing the complex emotions and powerful desires driving their characters. Strong performances from relative newcomers Xavier Samuel (THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE) and James Frecheville (ANIMAL KINGDOM) complement Watts and Wright’s and add another layer of intricacy to the story. Under the precise gaze of Fontaine’s camera, ADORE radiates with intoxicating sensuality while exploring the intricacies of love, family, morality and passion.

    “I’m talking a lot of people of color who’ve never made a pledge on Kickstarter so I really think that it’s a fallacy, it’s a misconception and it’s just plain out wrong with a capital “W” that because someone puts $5 on my film, someone who backs my film with $5… that was $5 that a young filmmaker was going to get and that logic does not follow through.” says Spike Lee.
