CATHERINE HARDWICKE broke into directing feature films with Thirteen, a film studded with teen sex, self harm and substance abuse. A lot of the same themes returned, with their edges rounded down, when she kick-started the Twilight franchise. In theory, though, they'll be back at full strength in Plush.
From the first minute of this project going before casting agencies it was described as an "erotic thriller." I guess that, ultimately, the audience will be the judge of that.
Here's an officially not-safe-for-work trailer with EMILY BROWNING and CAM GIGANDET in the midst of simultaneous make-up wearing and moody face competitions.
Interesting release structure: in cinemas in mid-September, on VOD in mid-October. That's a new one on me.
