First Look: Alice Eve In Neil LaBute's 'Some Velvet Morning' & Zoe Kazan And Jake Johnson In 'The Pretty One'

Two Tribeca Film Festival first-looks for you this afternoon. First up is one of two Neil LaBute films landing within the span of two months: "Some Velvet Morning," which is debuting at Tribeca in mid-April. It stars Alice Eve ("Star Trek Into Darkness") and Stanley Tucci, and it's a relationship drama making its world premiere in the Narrative section.

The second first-look from Tribeca is from the film "The Pretty One." Directed and written by first-time feature-length director Jenée LaMarque, the film stars Zoe Kazan and Jake Johnson alongside Ron Livingston, John Carroll Lynch and Frances Shaw.

It's also making its wold premiere in the Narratives section, and it's a rather odd comedy/drama about twins and assuming identities. Here's the synopsis:

Audrey has all of the qualities that her twin sister Laurel wishes she possessed: confidence, style, independence. When tragedy strikes, Laurel has the opportunity to reinvent herself. In a complex performance, Zoe Kazan poignantly captures Laurel’s complex mix of loss and awakening, especially as she begins a new relationship with her neighbor (Jake Johnson). Jenée LaMarque’s first feature film is a quirky, lovely tale of identity and the eternal bond between two sisters.

LaMarque directed the shorts "Spoonful" and "Happy Deathday," which we haven't seen, but the cast and the peculiar conceit definitely make it a film worth keeping an eye on. The Tribeca Film Festival runs April 17th through 28th.
