What happens when a one-night stand becomes a long-term tryst? That’s the premise behind first-time director-writer Matt Ross’s 28 Hotel Rooms, out Feb. 12 from Oscilloscope Laboratories.
An in-and-out arthouse showcase (to generate media awareness) generated ticket sales of $5,471 (not important) … the ARR works out to 95 days.
The story tracks the impact a one-night stand has on a man (Chris Messina — The Mindy Project, Damages, etc.) and woman (Marin Ireland — Homeland, Mildred Pierce) who, despite being in other relationships, have a wild night of sex. Months later, another city away, the two meet again … with similar results. So begins a years-long series of sexual encounters.
A film that sounds so adult and not-safe-for-work actually turns into a something more deep and meaningful, as emotions become involved, and the pair’s life plans become upended.
Oscilloscope Laboratories includes deleted scenes, an interview with Ross during the Sundance Film Festival and an original theatrical trailer.
