THE SHAPE OF THINGS is the new film from writer/director Neil LaBute. A contemporary story of love, sex and art set in a college town, the film follows the steadily intensifying relationship between Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) and Adam (Paul Rudd). As Evelyn strengthens her hold on Adam, his emotional and physical evolution discomforts his friends Jenny (Gretchen Mol) and Philip (Frederick Weller), with unexpected consequences for all. By turns hopeful and harsh, the quartet of college-age characters deals with the conflicting human desires for autonomy and connection, truth and love and the notion that seduction is an art.
