Exclusive: Love Crime Trailer
KST goes AWOL... someone call HR
Upcoming French thriller Love Crime has been billed as a blend of Working Girl and Fatal Attraction, or Dangerous Liaisons with Blackberries. Or Disclôsure. Whatever hokey tag we give it - and trust us, we can do this all day - it unquestionably features twisted business exec Kristin Scott Thomas doing things that would give your average HR person an aneurysm.
The film has a new international trailer, showing Ludivine Sagnier as Isabelle. She's a young executive who must negotiate an unusually stressful workplace. The company is presided over with bullying efficiency by Scott Thomas's boss Christine, a figure of hero-worship for the young employee, and, if this promo is anything to go by, a nasty piece of work. Isabelle looks ill-equipped to deal with the power games and psychological manipulations that follow.
A brutal crime is committed, the police are involved and Isabelle is left to fish herself out of the ensuing mess, presumably while her nasty boss does her best Dick Dastardly chuckle over a well-earned pint of sociopathic rage.brightcove.createExperiences();Find out if she manages it when Love Crime gets its UK release on December 14.
