Plotted as a loose adaptation of James M Cain's classic novel 'The Postman Always Rings Twice', this tense and elegant work reunites the director and star of 'Yella' (EIFF 2007) to hypnotic effect. Hoss stars as Laura, a glamorous young married woman who works for her husband's catering business. When handsome ex-army drifter Thomas (Fürmann) takes on some work for the couple, chemistry kicks in and murder comes to mind. 'Part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival'.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
