Heather Graham and Carrie-Anne Moss were both big in the early 2000s and then seemed to pretty much completely disappear. Now they’ll be able to make a bit of a comeback together, as they’ve begun production on Compulsion as two very different women who occupy adjacent apartments.
The film sees the women engage in a battle of wills, with one withdrawing from everything positive in life while the other is overflowing with its possibilities and illusions. Their confrontation and resolution is, apparently, both surprising and deeply disturbing. The film, now shooting in Ontario, Canada, also stars Kevin Dillon.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Saffron (Carrie-Anne Moss) is elegant, though she doesn’t emphasize the fact. A former child star, she’s emaciated, brilliant, excoriating and contemptuous of herself and the world. Amy (Heather Graham) is her neighbor, a chef, who is newly separated. She remains undaunted and is able to remold her mind and her body at will just like her surroundings. She dreams of helming her own Food Channel show and of being a celebrity like the ones she’s always so admired, such as the woman she discovers is actually living across the hall from her. She’s fearless and so in a way is her neighbor. It’s just that the chef fears nothing in life while her neighbor fears nothing about death.’ (Source: ComingSoon)
