Following on from the highly successful IVANS XTC, a landmark in digital cinema, acclaimed director Bernard Rose (CANDYMAN) continues the re-imagining of Leo Tolstoy's controversial 19th Century literature, in the second part of a planned trilogy.
The film investigates further into the darker side of modern Hollywood society, exploring the rich complexities of love, obsession, and paranoia in a raw, emotional and sexually charged thriller based around the theme of Beethoven's classic sonata.
