Of late, Roman Polanski has been taking inspiration from stage. His last feature film, "Carnage," was based on an award-winning play, while his forthcoming "Venus In Fur" is also ripped from the boards, adapting the work of David Ives. After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival last year the picture is finally making its way to U.S. theatres, and a new trailer is here to show you what the filmmaker has in store.

Venus In Furs

Of late, Roman Polanski has been taking inspiration from stage. His last feature film, "Carnage," was based on an award-winning play, while his forthcoming "Venus In Fur" is also ripped from the boards, adapting the work of David Ives. After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival last year the picture is finally making its way to U.S. theatres, and a new trailer is here to show you what the filmmaker has in store.

Mathieu Amalaric and Emmanuelle Seigner lead the cast, telling the story of a writer/director of a new play who is immersed in the process of finding an actress for a role in his upcoming work. A new talent comes in at the last minute and is seemingly the opposite of everything he's looking for. Reviews on this one were mixed on the Croisette, and so too was the opinion of our own Jessica Kiang who said in her review "the overwrought twists and on-the-nose inversions of the second half, all the bigger for taking place in one contained space, along with the sneaking suspicion that the film thought it was being terribly transgressive and daring when it actually felt facile and not a little skeezy, cooled us considerably."

See for yourself when "Venus In Fur" opens on June 20th.
