Thanks to the Netflix series Stranger Things, I have been a fan of Joe Keery for over seven years already, and thanks to the Prime Video streaming series Daisy Jones & The Six – which drew inspiration from the story of Fleetwood Mac – I recently became a fan of Camila Morrone. So it’s fun to see Keery and Morrone together in the upcoming crime thriller Marmalade, which is set to reach theatres and VOD on February 9th. With a month to go before that date arrives, a trailer for Marmalade has been released online and can be seen in the embed above.
The feature directorial debut of Keir O’Donnell, Marmalade is said to be “an edge-of-the-seat crime-tinged romance tale” that follows recently incarcerated Baron (Keery) who strikes up a friendship with cellmate Otis, a man with a well-versed history of prison breaks. As the pair hatch an escape plan together, Baron recalls the story of how he met Marmalade (Morrone), the love of his life, and their “Bonnie and Clyde” style scheme to rob a bank in order to care for his sick mother and give the couple the life they’ve always dreamed of.
Keery and Morrone are joined in the cast by Aldis Hodge (The Invisible Man), who takes on the role of Otis.
Coming our way from Brainstorm Media and Signature Entertainment, Marmalade was produced by Sarah Gabriel, Marc Goldberg, James Harris, Mark Lane, and Jason Shapiro.
Judging by the trailer, Marmalade looks like it’s going to be a movie where the tone is all over the place. Just within the two minute preview it shifts from being a goofy comedy to a love story to a dark thriller, so it will be interesting to see how it plays out over the film’s 100 minute running time. I’ll be checking it out; all I needed to know to be sold on it is that it stars Joe Keery and Camila Morrone.
