Forty Shades of Blue is the story of Laura, a Russian woman living in Memphis with Alan, a legendary music producer twice her age. Though she looks the part, Laura is no typical trophy wife. Vigilantly guarded, she sublimates her own desires out of a stoic sense of duty and a reluctance to impose on Alans generosity. When Alans estranged adult son Michael comes for a visit, an intuitive bond develops between them that destabilizes her tightly ordered world. Michael becomes a mirror that allows her to see herself and new possibilities. Dina Korzuns riveting, coiled performance offers precious glimpses into Lauras smoldering soul. As in a Henry James novel, Sachs charts his heroines subtle self-discovery with intimate precision. The power of Forty Shades of Blue confirms Sachs as one the most exciting voices in American cinema.
