28 Hotel Rooms

BY Hopscotch Films | 11-Oct-2013
Beautifully constructed, intimate romantic drama about a couple grappling with the complexities of loving more than one person. Chris Messina (Argo, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and Marin Ireland (Side Effects, Homeland) turn in striking performances in this candid and tender film. While travelling for work in a city hotel far from their homes, a novelist and a corporate accountant find themselves in bed together. Although she's married and he's seeing someone, their intense attraction turns a one-night stand into an unexpected relationship and a respite from their daily lives.

Witnessing the relationship through a series of 28 hotel room liaisons we see a portrait of an evolving forbidden love that could become the most significant of their lives. 28 Hotel Rooms premiered at Sundance and is out on DVD and Digital HD now.

Chris Messina and Marin Ireland turn in outstanding performances. Each exhibits a vulnerability and emotional honesty that allows the audience to connect intensely with the two characters and every moment they share.

28 Hotel Rooms premiered at Sundance and it is a candid, exquisitely constructed mosaic. The film adeptly illustrates how seemingly inconsequential moments and actions can often mean more than we suspect.
