I found this movie on Amazon, and it sounded pretty interesting, and when I saw a short running time, it made me curious.

In my experience, independent movies are either far too long, or the perfect length. Likewise, they vary from pitiful, instantly forgettable, or phenomenal, like most films I guess, however independent movies are even more difficult to analyze as there is little in between. At less than an hour and a half, I knew I wouldn't have that problem. What I watched surprised me even more and was extremely impressive.

Only two characters throughout the entire film, in one location. This is an extremely difficult task for any filmmaker, but as opposed to others with similar types of settings, this took place in real-time, even more difficult.

Alice Eve delivers another brilliant performance, who I hope will get some more starring mainstream roles soon. I loved her in She's Out of My League, and she has done a string of indies, all of which she was impressive. This film will certainly help her career.

Stanley Tucci was, for lack of a better word, Stanley Tucci. Always spot on, and will always add extra depth to whatever character he is playing.

What I loved about this film was the on-going back-and-forth between the two. There is a deep history between the characters, with anger growing between both, and a history of problems. What made this so interesting, is that it is never actually stated what the issues are, but the viewer completely understands the complexities of both characters.

I was riveted to see what was going to happen with the facts given, and those not given explicitly. The ending is perfectly executed. I thought I guessed the surprise ending, and I was right...

I'd like to preface this review by saying that although I found this taut psychological drama fascinating, it is definitely not a film I would recommend for many. This is a film that I would expect to see in an "art movie theater." In fact, it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April.

There is little if any "real" action. The movie is set entirely inside a beautiful Brooklyn brownstone - with a brief trip to the backyard. This is basically a story of two people - a dialogue between them. Velvet and her former lover Fred, (Stanley Tucci), reunite after 4 years. Their initial parting did not go well. Fred has left his wife and shows up on Velvet's doorstep with all his worldly possessions, expecting her to welcome him with open arms. Again, it has been FOUR years with no communication! One immediately senses that something bizarre is going on. Velvet, brilliantly played by Alice Eve, is first seen under the opening credits languorously stretched out on a sofa wearing headphones and a short red dress, her blonde hair falling over her face. The camera has been positioned directly above her, as if she were being viewed by some godlike presence. In fact it is as if her body, unknown and as yet unnamed, is being served up for the viewer's pleasure.

She hears someone knocking loudly and ringing the bell. To her surprise, and perhaps, dismay, she finds that Fred is there waiting to come in. Actually he doesn't wait to be invited, but walks in with his suitcases. He announces, somewhat proudly, that he’s finally left his wife and is now free to build a life with her. He’s even got his bags packed and seems ready to move in with Velvet. His presence rattles her and the tension between the two begins.

I recently watched both Cold Comes the Night with Alice Eve and since I'm both a fan of hers and Neil Labute's
I watched this one, too. Cold Comes the Night is the better movie. But both movies prove Alice Eve can do a lot more
than terrific romantic comedies like She's Out of My League. Beats me why Hollywood isn't giving Eve more leading roles.
As far as this movie goes, it's two characters in a house, that's it, and it's not Sleuth, that's for sure.
Somebody said there was a twist, and since eventually I got tired of the dialogue, I fast forwarded to the last 9 minutes, and thought, this isn't a twist, but then it finally happened. Didn't think the twist was worth 7 bucks.
I haven't seen everything LaBute has done, but I think In the Company of Men, Your Friends and Neighbors, and The Shape of Things are his three best movies.
Hopefully Dirty Weekend, his provocatively titled next movie with Alice Eve, more actually happens in the movie. That movie seems to have four main characters.

At first it felt like my marriage. Then it felt like the fears I had being stalked years after my divorce. Then he raped her. (Honestly thought someone was going to die)...then it was all in fun. I think the acting was good, because he really seemed psycho, and she seemed genuine trying to get him to leave. I can't say I enjoyed the movie, because I think that particular rape "fantasy" plays out too often in real life, and it's scary. I am glad threatening the cops made my stalker stop.
