Though Adam Sandler, deservedly, gets most of the love for the 2019 film, “Uncut Gems,” his performance is almost overshadowed by the relatively unknown young actress Julia Fox as his jewelry store employee/mistress. Fox’s performance is so good in that film, many people were wondering what the actress has up her sleeve next. Apparently, her next major film is the forthcoming thriller, “PVT Chat.”
As seen in the trailer for “PVT Chat,” the film stars Fox as an Internet cam girl/dominatrix that earns her income by luring men in with her beauty, charm, and dominant personality. And those attributes are so powerful, she finds herself with a bit of a fanatic, Jack, a lonely NYC man that desperately wants to meet his dominatrix fantasy woman and begins to lose his sanity as he imagines seeing her on the streets of NYC (though, she’s supposedly in San Francisco). As you might expect, things progressively go downhill for Jack.
Joining Fox in the film are Peter Vack (HBO Max’s “Love Life”), Buddy Duress (“Good Time,” “Beware of Dog”), Keith Poulson (“Mercury Plains,” “Little Sister”), Kevin Moccia (“Unbound,” “Snitches”), and David J. White (“This Side of Heaven,” “Required Field”). The film is written and directed by Ben Hozie, who previously helmed the features, “Annunciation” and “The Lion’s Den.”
“PVT Chat” will arrive in theaters on February 5 and on VOD on February 9. You can watch the trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis:
Jack is an internet gambler living in NYC who becomes fixated on Scarlet – a cam girl from San Francisco. His obsession reaches a boiling point when fantasy materializes in reality and Jack sees Scarlet on a rainy Chinatown street.
