In this tense neo-noir turned psychosexual drama, down-and-out chef Frank (Michael Shannon "Boardwalk Empire," Midnight Special) heads to Las Vegas with his girlfriend Lola (Imogen Poots, That Awkward Moment) to take a promising job opportunity. Lola is also taking advantage of the move and attempting to kick off a career as a fashion designer, although Frank is not exactly supportive. Suspicious that Lola's new employer (Justin Long, Tusk, Drag Me to Hell) might have romantic feelings for her, and dealing with the surprise arrival of one of her ex-lovers from Paris, Frank's discomfort morphs into a rabid jealousy that begins to take over his life. Director Matthew Ross's first feature film is a character study that recalls the work of Polanski and De Palma, boasting a stylish and sophisticated look, and a quietly unnerving performance by Michael Shannon as a Las Vegas chef who can't shake himself out of a spiral of distrust that he may have just imagined. Frank & Lola is a seductive and meticulously paced debut that dives deep into the themes of romantic suspicion and sexual obsession.
