PASSION PLAYS FOR TWO MIDNITES AT NITEHAWK! A young businesswoman plots a murderous revenge after her boss and mentor steals her idea. Brian De Palma returns to the sleek, sly, seductive territory of Dressed To Kill with an erotic corporate thriller fueled by sex, ambition, image, envy and the dark, murderous side of PASSION. The film stars Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapaceas two rising female executives in a multinational corporation whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn literally cut-throat. As the maze-like story begins, Christine (McAdams) – a gorgeous, powerful executive at an international ad agency in Berlin — is searching for a killer idea to impress her bosses, helped by her clever but naïve protégé Isabelle (Rapace). Isabelle admires Christine’s polish and devotion to her work and Christine feeds on Isabelle’s admiration. But when Isabelle comes up with a brilliant viral marketing idea that wows the client, it is Christine who gleefully takes the credit. Thus begins what starts out as typical office back-stabbing – or “just business,” as Christine explains it — yet soon turns into something ferocious and primal.
