"I know that I need this time to grow and put my life in order."
Say you just broke up with your girlfriend and you're pretty bummed out about it. What's your next move? If you follow the advice of the upcoming indie Simon Killer, the best move is to head to Paris and start a romance with a French prostitute. If the looks of the first trailer is any guide, it's not great advice.
From the producers of Sundance Film Festival award–winner Martha Marcy May Marlene, Simon Killer follows college graduate Simon (Brady Corbet), who travels to Paris after a break-up, goes to seemingly every club in the city, and ends up romancing a beautiful prostitute (Mati Diop), which leads to, well, more trouble.
Here's the synopsis for Simon Killer.
The follow-up to Antonio Campos’ critically acclaimed Afterschool, Simon Killer is an erotic and and psychological portrait of Simon (Brady Corbet, Melancholia, Martha Marcy May Marlene), a well-educated, handsome and seemingly sympathetic college graduate with just a hint of something off-putting enough to ignite a sense of concern. Recently heartbroken, Simon travels to Paris to clear his head. After several days of wandering aimlessly, Simon finds himself drawn into a sex parlor and has a sexual encounter with an exotic prostitute, Victoria (Mati Diop, 35 Shots of Rum). The chemistry builds between the two until they find themselves in a serious relationship, one that leads to blackmail, betrayal and the ultimate revelation of Simon’s true nature.
