“The Loft” movie quotes bring the thrills as five men must figure out who murdered a woman in their shared loft. The film, which is a remake of the 2008 Belgian film “Loft,” was written by Bart De Pauw and Wesley Strick, and directed by Erik Van Looy. After several distribution changes, “The Loft” opened in theaters on January 30, 2015.
In “The Loft,” five married men, Vincent (Karl Urban), Chris (James Marsden), Luke (Wentworth Miller), Marty (Eric Stonestreet) and Philip (Matthias Schoenaerts), share a downtown loft which each use to live out their deepest fantasies with women other than their wives. It all goes well until one day when Luke enters the loft to find a dead blonde woman in the bed.
The five men scramble to try to react to the situation knowing full well that if they call the police about the murder, their extramarital affairs will become known to their families. So they first try to solve the case themselves and determine that either one of their five is responsible or they are being framed, the latter theory which is strengthened when they receive random messages from a second blonde woman who seems to know their secrets.“The Loft” helps close out the January 2015 movie slate which also featured films such as ”Black or White,” ”Project Almanac,” ”Mortdecai,” ”The Boy Next Door,” ”Black Sea,” ”Strange Magic,” ”Still Alice,” ”The Wedding Ringer,” ”Blackhat,” ”Taken 3,” ”Predestination,” ”A Most Violent Year,” ”The Interview,” ”Unbroken,” ”American Sniper,” ”Into the Woods,” ”Big Eyes,” ”The Gambler,” ”The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” and ”Annie.”
Luke: “What does it mean?”
Chris: “Fate will unite us”
Vincent: “Gentlemen, there’s something I want to show you. Welcome to the loft. It’s our own private oasis. Think about it. No messy hotel bills. No questionable credit card activity.”
Chris: “I don’t know. I’m not like that.”
Vincent: “Accepting a key to the loft means you accept the rules to the loft. Tell nobody. Have fun.”
Luke: “What the hell happened? This can’t be real.”
Vincent: “Do you know who she is?”
Luke: “Of course not”
Chris: “We gotta call the cops!”
Vincent: “Think about our wives!”
Chris: “There’s a dead woman here, Vincent.”
Luke: “The door was locked. The alarm was turned off. Someone got it in with one of our keys.”A little detective work leads the men to believe that one of the five of them sharing the loft was involved in the murder. This makes them all suspects and all suspicious of one another.
