Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the US release of DOUBLE LOVER, Francois Ozon’s twisted erotic thriller loosely based on the Joyce Carol Oates novel “Lives of the Twins.” Starring Marine Vacth and Jérémie Renier, DOUBLE LOVER is scheduled to open in New York (AMC Empire, The Quad) Los Angeles, San Francisco and Philadelphia on Wednesday, February 14 followed by a national roll out.
Chloé, (Young and Beautiful’s Marine Vacth) is a fragile young woman who falls in love with her psychoanalyst, Paul (Jérémie Renier,) soon after starting therapy to try and uncover the roots of her mysterious symptoms. Several months later the couple moves in together, but Chloé discovers that her lover is keeping part of his identity a secret. Visually striking, often outrageous, and chock full of mischievous cinematic references, DOUBLE LOVER is a guilty pleasure that keeps the audience guessing.
A master at playfully exploring sexual repression and the inner lives of women, François Ozon returns with DOUBLE LOVER to several of the themes and genres he has delved into throughout his prolific career. His films include Water Drops on Burning Rocks, Criminal Lovers, Under the Sand, 8 Women, Swimming Pool, In The House, Young & Beautiful, The New Girlfriend and Frantz.
DOUBLE LOVER marks the second time that Jérémie Renier works with Ozon since Potiche opposite Catherine Deneuve. A frequent Dardenne brothers muse (The Unknown Girl, The Kid With a Bike, The Silence of Lorna, L’enfant, La Promesse), his credits also include Bertrand Bonello’s Saint Laurent, Olivier Assayas’ Summer Hours, Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges, and Joe Wright’s Atonement.
