Passion is Brian De Palma’s next sexy thriller starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace as executives who GET IT ON. SHABAM!!!
There aren’t too many details about Passion yet, but the basic idea is that there is an executive and her protege, and they get into a spat after the protege’s idea is stolen by the boss. I hear that. I came up with the game hockey, and fucking Canada stole it.
THAT’S WHERE THE RAGE COMES FROM.
I also invented backgammon. Hence my hatred of… Greece? Old people? Who plays backgammon?
Anyways, after the boss lady steals the idea, the protege plots revenge. With extreme menace. Also, I think McAdams and Rapace are going to make out. Maybe make lady love.
Passion is the baby of writer/director Brian de Palma, who made Scarface, The Untouchables, and Mission: Impossible. He’s quite a talented dude, though some of his attempts at these sexy thrillers, like Femme Fatale and The Black Dahlia have been less than successful.
Who’s In It?
Rachel McAdams … Christine
Noomi Rapace … Isabelle
Karoline Herfurth … Dani
Leila Rozario … Woman in Elevator
Rainer Bock … Inspector Bach
Ian T. Dickinson … Detective
Frank Witter … Usher Theatre
Alexander Yassin … Concierge
What’s Good About It?
Rachel McAdams making out with another woman? I’m in. Noomi Rapace is that other woman? I’m going to be wearing a trenchcoat or sweatpants to the theater.
What’s Bad About It?
I don’t know why, but the premise is actually kinda boring to me. Not the lesbian stuff with Rachel McAdams, but the plot itself seems sorta bland. I don’t see Passion having any hook beyond the lesbian stuff.
Our Clever Prediction
Do you have an erection? No? WRONG ANSWER. The correct answer is NOT YET.
I don’t think Passion is going to make a lot of money, but it is going to make a mess.
