It's Heather Graham vs. Carrie-Anne Moss In Psychological Food Thriller Compulsion
Weinstein Co. has announced acquisition of the in-production Compulsion, a two-hander starring Heather Graham and Carrie-Anne Moss that is a remake of the South Korean thriller 301, 302. The story surrounds two obsessive-compulsive female neighbors in the same apartment complex who develop a bond, with dark results. The best part? It's about food! Hit the jump for more about this rare entry in the annals of foodie horror!
Graham plays a chef and Moss her quiet neighbor (a writer in the original film, an obscure 1995 oddity), who have entirely opposite attitudes toward food; one wants to serve it up, and the other can't stand it. What could go wrong? Kevin Dillon and Joe Mantegna also star. Egidio Coccimiglio directs.
COMPULSION is based on the South Korean film 301, 302 and centers on two women occupying neighboring apartments, each grappling with obsessions that have begun to overtake their lives. Graham portrays Amy, a vivacious, calculating chef whose need to be desired is so far-reaching that she becomes a star in her own imaginary cooking show. Moss is Saffron, a reclusive but alluring ex-child star who is battling anorexia. Their complex, ever-intensifying relationship builds to a surprising climax as their emotional connections to food and one another boil over.
