Uncut Gems’ Julia Fox plays a cam girl in the dark trailer for PVT Chat

Directed by Ben Hozie, the film is set to premiere in theatres and online next month

Julia Fox was a breakout star of the Safdie Brothers’ Uncut Gems in 2019, playing the loyal girlfriend to Adam Sandler’s frenetic New York jeweller, Howard Ratner. Now, the actress – also a former dominatrix, fashion designer, artist, and model – has landed a role in a new, New York-set indie film, titled PVT Chat.

The film revolves around Jack, a lonely internet gambler living in NYC (played by Peter Vack), and Scarlet, the San Francisco-based cam girl and overlooked painter he becomes fixated on (played by Fox). 

“His obsession reaches a boiling point when fantasy materializes in reality and Jack sees Scarlet on a rainy Chinatown street,” reads an official synopsis, adding that the film is about: “freedom and fantasy, death and friendship” in the digital age.

Written and directed by filmmaker Ben Hozie, PVT Chat premiered at Fantasia International Film Festival last year, and will be released by Dark Star Pictures. The film will be available to watch in selected theaters February 5, and to stream online from February 9, 2021.
