Paramount Home Media Distribution has picked up director Anne Fontaine’s film adaptation of writer Doris Lessing’s whisper-thin “cougar” seduction novel, “The Grandmothers” — retitled for its theatrical release as Adore — for delivery on DVD and Blu-ray to the domestic home entertainment market on Dec. 10.
The ARR for this Australian import teaming Naomi Watts with Robin Wright works out to just 95 days and ticket sales for the film’s limited theatrical run currently stand at $318,932.
Attractive “cougars” and long-time friends and neighbors Lil and Roz (Watts and Wright respectively) each have a son — played by Xavier Samuel as Ian, Lil’s son, and James Frecheville as Tom, Roz’s son — who are also goods friends and as the story unfolds take turns seducing the other’s mother. Oh my!
In defense of the “children” — any red-blooded young male would have a difficult time with the likes of Naomi Watts and Robin Wright as available, in a near-resort setting and objects of desire. However, with that said, therapy is definitely in the cards for all involved in this sexually-charged and exceptionally erotic tale of questionable decisions.
In other release news from Paramount this week, the Comedy Central production of Bill Cosby: Far From Finished will be checking in on DVD on Nov. 26.
