A first look at Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace in Brian De Palma's latest thriller, "Passion", has been revealed. Sporting daring red lipsticks, McAdams and Rapace are pictured in an intimate scene where they are about to lock lips.
A loose remake of Alain Corneau's 2010 French film "Love Crime", "Passion" follows a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. McAdams portrays Christine, while Rapace plays the other woman named Isabelle.
Christine possesses the natural elegance and casual case associated with one who has a healthy relationship with money and power. Innocent, lovely and easily exploited, her admiring protege Isabelle is full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing.
Christine takes pleasure in excercising control over Isabelle, leading her one step at a time ever deeper into a game of seduction and manipulation, dominance and humiliation. But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine's lovers, war breaks out.
The erotic thriller is set to be shopped for distribution at this year's Cannes Film Festival later this May. Also starring in the adult movie are Dominic Cooper, Karoline Herfurth and Paul Anderson.
