Polanski's adaptation of Venus in Fur is based upon the Tony Award-winning play by David Ives. The film stars Emmanuelle Seigner and Mathieu Amalric and made its world premiere in Competition at last year's Cannes Film Festival.

Set in modern-day Paris, Venus in Fur follows a writer-director (Amalric) and a pushy, foul-mouthed actress named Vanda (Seigner) who bursts into auditions in a whirlwind of erratic energy. Vanda's emotionally charged audition for the gifted but demanding playwright becomes an electrifying game of cat and mouse that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, seduction and power, and ultimately, attraction and obsession.

Venus in Fur won a Tony nomination for Best Play and garnered a Tony Award for Nina Arianda as Best Actress.
