The film, previously titled Two Mothers, boasts an all-star cast led by Naomi Watts and Robin Wright. And with its September US release date on the horizon, a new US trailer has been released over at Apple, to go with the recently-surfaced new poster.
Naomi Watts and Robin Wright deliver riveting performances in ADORE, a sensual and provocative drama about two lifelong friends who find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention. An unpredictable tale of misguided love and a heartfelt celebration of the enduring nature of female friendship, ADORE is the English-speaking directorial debut of Anne Fontaine.
Set in an Australian seaside town, ADORE establishes an aura of fable as it follows two women’s plunge into uncharted waters. Watts and Wright fearlessly engage with the physical and psychological components of the story, capturing the complex emotions and powerful desires driving their characters. Strong performances from Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville complement Watts and Wright. ADORE radiates with intoxicating sensuality while exploring the intricacies of love, family, morality and passion.
Xavier Samuel, James Frecheville, and Ben Mendelsohn complete the cast nicely alongside Watts and Wright.
The BAFTA-nominated Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel) directs from a script by the Oscar-winning Christopher Hampton (Atonement, Dangerous Liaisons), based on an original short novel, The Grandmothers, by Doris Lessing.
Adore will be released in the US on September 6th. No word yet on a UK release date, but with any luck, it will be arriving on our shores before the year’s end. Here’s the new trailer and poster to give you a taste of what to expect.
