A psycho sexual thriller can also be used to describe my last relationship, then again that was no mystery. Backgammon seems to have both, a getaway at a country mansion turns dangerous when relationships end, and mind games begin to be played. Gravitas Ventures presents the directorial debut of Francisco Orvañanos, which will hopefully keep you on the edge of your seat. Backgammon will hit theatres and VOD March 11th.
Synopsis: Part psychological sexual thriller and part classic mystery, Backgammon explores sexual tension, danger and mind games between a group of college students during a getaway in a country mansion. When Andrew invites Lucian and his girlfriend Elizabeth for a weekend vacation, they don’t expect Andrew’s sister Miranda and her Baudelaire-obsessed boyfriend Gerald to show up as well. Overwhelmed by Gerald’s antics and the constant irritating horseplay with Miranda, Andrew and Elizabeth split. Lucian, however, decides to stay, as a simmering, sexual tension develops between him and the flighty, flirtatious Miranda. When Gerald explodes after losing everything during an alcohol-fueled poker game with Lucian, Miranda finally gives him the boot. But as she and Lucian begin to dance around each other, their surroundings show threatening signs that Gerald may never have left.
