Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace Ignite Brian De Palma's Passion
08.24.12 by BJSprecher
The first trailer for acclaimed filmmaker Brian De Palma's (Scarface, The Untouchables) new sexually-charged psychological thriller, Passion, has been released online. A remake of the 2010 French movie Love Crime, Passion will debut at the 69th Venice Film Festival (La Biennale di Venezia), where it will compete for the prestigious Golden Lion award.
The movie stars Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) as Christine, a ruthless business executive who enjoys using and abusing people for her own personal amusement, and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) as Isabelle, an ambitious but naive administrative assistant who routinely suffers both professional and personal humiliations at the hands of Christine. Love, lust, sex, murder, money, manipulation...Passion has everything we've come to expect from the brilliant mind of De Palma.
