If you like your mysteries blended with erotic seduction, then you need look no further than Ariztical Entertainment’s July 17 DVD debut of the filmmaking team of Carl Medland and Amarjeet Singh’s latest, The Adored.
In this eagerly awaited follow-up to The Cost of Love, we find ourselves following the path of a fashion model named Maia (Ione Butler) as she seeks to rekindle her flagging career — filled with emotional complications — by secluding herself at the remote digs of high profile fashion photographer Francesca Allman (Laura Martin-Simpson) for a creative shoot.
Mutual attraction between the two soon ignites into passion, but there is something definitely amiss as the action periodically cuts away from the ever-building sexual tension to a psychiatrist’s office where a clearly agitated man named Adrian (Jake Maskall) is in a session with a cold and calculating woman named Doctor Woods (Caroline Burns Cooke).
We are given little information — a clever plot device — but we are led to believe (perhaps manipulated) that the angry Adrian has some connection to the wayward Maia. He is ready to explode, but in any well-constructed thriller, not everything is as it seems.
Twists, turns and sexual intrigues … not a bad combination for a summer’s evening!
