Lionsgate Films U.K. have debuted the first look into "Tenderness" with the release of the film's trailer. Less than two minutes long, the video gives away a background story to the movie as well as displays footage introducing its four major characters played by Russell Crowe, Jon Foster, Sophie Traub and Laura Dern.

Set in New York State, "Tenderness" takes its focus on juvenile murderer by the name of Eric Poole and hard-bitten detective Cristofuoro. Having served his sentence for a young girl's murder, Poole is released from jail at the age of 18-year-old.

When he embarks on a road trip up-state, Cristofuoro who believes that Poole is a potential serial killer keeps him under his watchful eyes. But, all is not as it seems as Poole soon finds himself on the run with a 16-year-old girl, Lori, who could have been witness to the first murder and has become obsessed with him.

Directed by "Hide and Seek" helmer John Polson, the psychological thriller is penned by Emil Stern from Robert Cormier' novel. The movie sees Russell Crowe stars as Cristofuoro, Jon Foster as Eric Poole and Sophie Traub as Lori. It is yet to have its U.S. release date.

We met Russell while filming "Tenderness" in Staten Island, N.Y. We drove past him on set, stopped and asked for a pix. After looking into our car he said "open the door" and jumped into the back seat" to everyone's amusement. We drove him to a parking lot, got out and he took pictures with the three of us!!!!! What a guy!!! I want the world to know he was a sweetheart to us. As we showered him with accolades, he only talked about his wife and family. So humble...Love this guy!!!

I admit I had few hopes to see this movie released, after a so long post-production period. Fron the trailer, it looks interesting indeed, with a hooking plot, a very good cast and Russell Crowe top-notch as usual. I can't wait for the film to be screened in Europe asap!

Why oh why Lionsgate and John Polson wait for sooo long to release this movie?! I wonder what seems to be the problem? At first, I must admit that I felt a bit pessimistic when the story made into a movie, because the storyline in the book is kinda slow and boring IMO. When I saw the trailer, my expectation rises high! Can't wait to see it on the theater. The plot and the thriller look top notch!

You can hardly recognize Russell Crowe at first sight, but his calm and moving voice helps. It would be nice to have the opportunity to have this film released in France pretty soon, can't wait !

can't wait -- was a cool little book, and Crowe's look and voice are different, and Foster is much as I saw him in book.

The book was really good. I am looking forward to the film and a glimpse at Russ as Christafuoro
