Production has recently started on Compulsion, starring Heather Graham and Carrie-Anne Moss. The film, written by Floyd Byars (Masterminds) and directed by Egidio Coccimiglio (Imaginary Grace), stars Graham as Amy, a relentless optimist who lives in an apartment adjacent to Saffron (Moss), a morose former child star.  The polar opposites meet in a confrontation that resolves in an unexpected – and disturbing – way.  Compulsion, now shooting in Ontario, Canada, also stars Kevin Dillon and Joe Mantegna and boasts Academy Award-winning cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond. Hit the jump to check out the press release.

Here’s the official press release and synopsis of Compulsion:

heather-graham-compulsionHeather Graham and Carrie-Anne Moss have begun production on Compulsion as two very different women who occupy adjacent apartments. In a battle of wills, one woman is withdrawing from everything positive in life while the other is overflowing with its possibilities and illusions. Their confrontation and resolution is both surprising and deeply disturbing. The film, now shooting in Ontario, Canada, also stars Kevin Dillon and Joe Mantegna and is being directed by Egidio Coccimiglio.

Compulsion is written by Floyd Byars. The producers are Gary Howsam and Bill Marks. Academy Award winning cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, considered one of the most influential cinematographers in history, is the Director of Photography. Jeff Sackman’s TAJJ Media is managing the distribution rights licensing for the picture.

In Compulsion, Saffron (Carrie-Anne Moss) is elegant, though she doesn’t emphasize the fact. A former child star, she’s emaciated, brilliant, excoriating and contemptuous of herself and the world. Amy (Heather Graham) is her neighbor, a chef, who is newly separated. She remains undaunted and is able to remold her mind and her body at will just like her surroundings. She dreams of helming her own Food Channel show and of being a celebrity like the ones she’s always so admired, such as the woman she discovers is actually living across the hall from her. She’s fearless and so in a way is her neighbor. It’s just that the chef fears nothing in life while her neighbor fears nothing about death.
