The Players - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
THE quest to get laid is on as Oscar® winning star Jean Dujardin (The Artist) and Gilles Lellouche (Mesrine, Tell No One) star in The Players, released in select cinemas on Friday, July 6 and on DVD and to download from July 30, 2012 by Momentum Pictures.
An hilariously outrageous comedy, The Players explores the triumphs and failures of male infidelity in all its desperate, absurd and wildly funny forms.
From a sales conference hotel in the suburbs to a smart sex addiction clinic, from a swish Parisian nightclub to the glitzy meat market of Las Vegas, they launch themselves into the age old pursuit. Every timeworn excuse is profferred; every trick in the book is played.
Witty and moving, honest and cynical, hope beats eternal in the lusting male heart, but the road to illicit pleasure is never an easy one. Reuniting the Oscar® winning team of Dujardin and Hazanavicius, The Players couldn’t be more outrageously different to The Artist.
Featuring an outstanding ensemble cast including Guillaume Canet (The Beach) and Dujardin’s wife Alexandre Lamy (Possessions) and helmed by directors; Oscar® winner Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist), Fred Cavayé (Point Blank), Eric Lartigau (The Big Picture), Emmannuelle Bercot (Backstage), Alexandre Courtès (The Incident), as well as its stars Jean Dujardin, and Gilles Lellouche also stepping behind the camera.
