Take a look at the trailer for Frank & Lola, an upcoming drama-thriller starring Michael Shannon and Imogen Poots.

Shannon plays Frank, a chef who sparks up a passionate, sudden fling with Lola (Poots). It’s all going great, until a man from her past comes into the picture, pushing him to question where his trust lies and whether she’s playing him for a fool. The fact that he’s a little obsessive and possessive certainly can’t help matters.

This looks like a solid little feature debut from short film writer-director Matthew Ross. Early reviews are quite good, commending Shannon, Poots, and the film’s tightly structured, atmospheric exploration of control within a relationship. And it’s nice trailer, too. We’re in.

Frank & Lola, also starring Justin Long, Rosanna Arquette, Michael Nyqvist, Suteara Vaughn, Alex Lombard and Emmanuelle Devos, will be hitting US cinemas on December 9.

Synopsis for Frank & Lola:

Set in Las Vegas and Paris, two of the world’s most glamorous cities, FRANK & LOLA is a psychosexual noir romance about love and sex, obsession and betrayal, revenge and redemption. Matthew Ross’s debut feature stars Michael Shannon as Frank, an up-and-coming chef, and Imogen Poots as Lola, an aspiring fashion designer, who find one another at a point when each is at a defining moment in life. Their affair is sudden, passionate, and seemingly everything Frank has always wanted. But, his happiness proves short-lived when a man from Lola’s past, a past that is full of secrets, turns up on the scene, forcing Frank to question whether he can trust Lola—or himself.
