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.
