Brian De Palma‘s Passion starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace is playing in the Cannes Film Festival market, which means press are unlikely to get a look at it and even those that do will be unlikely to be able to talk about it. Nevertheless, it’s presence is being felt as SBS Productions and Wild Bunch have posted the banner you see above on the Cannes Croisette and unveiled six new images and a sales poster via the film’s Facebook page.
The film is an adaptation of the Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier French thriller Crime d’Amour (Love Crime), described as an erotic thriller telling the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Christine (McAdams) has an admiring protege in Isabelle (Rapace) who is full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing. She takes pleasure in exercising control over Isabelle, which is leading her 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.
