Ahead of its limited release next month, a poster and trailer have arrived online for the upcoming drama Submission. Written and directed by Richard Levine, the film is based on Francine Prose’s novel Blue Angel and features a cast that includes Addison Timlin, Stanley Tucci, Kyra Sedgwick, and Janeane Garofalo; take a look below…
“Ted (Stanley Tucci) is a once-acclaimed author who teaches writing at a small liberal arts college. Though his marriage to Sherrie (Kyra Sedgwick) is comfortable, he finds himself drowning in discontent — stuffy departmental dinners at which he drinks too much, smug colleagues whom he dislikes yet fears he resembles, and an endless stream of untalented students. But when a new pupil, Angela (Addison Timlin), shows promise Ted focuses on nurturing her career, and she appears more than willing to devote the one-on-one time required. Basking in Angela’s youth, talent, and admiration, just as she benefits from Ted’s wisdom, experience, and professional connections, it’s only a matter of time before lines are crossed and it becomes unclear whether Ted is predator or prey and Angela is victim or victimizer.”
Submission is set for release on March 9th.
