Highly Charged 'Nymphomaniac' Has 'Super Secret' Screening At Sundance
Critics at the Sundance Film Festival got a treat on Tuesday night - a special screening of Lars Von Triers' upcoming "Nymphomaniac: Volume 1."
Reporters were kept in the dark about the "super secret" screening and were only told that they were about to see a "highly anticipated film," according to USA Today.
The film centers on charming old bachelor Seligman, who finds a woman named Joe beaten up in an alley. He takes her home to his apartment and asks about her life. The self-diagnosed nymphomaniac Joe tells her story from birth to the age of 50.
In November, YouTube briefly removed a clip from the film that featured LaBeouf completely nude.
The actor sent Von Triers a sex tape to secure his role in the production. He told talk show host Chelsea Handler, "I sent him videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex, and that's how I got the job."
LaBeouf originally stated that the film would feature several unsimulated sex scenes and defended his decision join the cast; however, it was later revealed that the bodies of adult film stars would be digitally inserted for the graphic sex scenes.
Volume 1 hits theaters on March 6.
