“Never been with anyone else your entire lives – that so crazy,” the couple’s friend says. “Our sex life is really, really great,” she replies. “Compared to what?” another pal chimes in. “The two of you are so perfect and constant and inevitable and boring — aren’t you curious? You must be.”
So sets up Permission, a romantic dramedy starring Rebecca Hall and Dan Stevens as said perfect yet boring pair. Anna and Will have shared so many firsts: kiss, love and only relationship. The aforementioned conversation takes place 10 years into their coupling, at Anna’s 30th birthday party – as Will is about to propose. But the thought of what might have been and could be lingers. So Anna proposes that they try opening their relationship – as a sexual experiment – and they venture out of the purely monogamous boundaries.
Gina Gershon, Francois Arnaud, Morgan Spector, David Joseph Craig and Jason Sudeikis co-star in writer-director Brian Crano’s film, which premiered at Tribeca. Hall, Margot Hand, Giri Tharan and Joshua Thurston produced it. Good Deed Entertainment got Permission in January and will release it in theaters on February 9.
