Catherine Hardwicke stepped away from directing any of the sequels to Twilight, and now she’s taking taking things into psychological thriller territory with Plush. She’s also taken Twilight Saga stars Cam Gigandet and Xavier Samuel along for the ride.
The film stars Emily Browning as Hayley, lead singer of the rock band Plush. She is married to Carter (Cam Gigandet), with whom she has twins. However, tragedy strikes when her bandmate and brother, Jack (Thomas Dekker), dies of an overdose. His replacement, Enzo (Xavier Samuel), ends up being a great songwriting partner for Hayley. The duo soon take things further and begin sleeping with one another, but Enzo goes way over the line and becomes obsessed with Hayley, hiding some deep dark secrets that may have something to do with her brother.
Thomas Dekker and Frances Fisher also star in the movie, which is out in the US this week (but there’s no UK date as yet). [Read more…]
