According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Open” is “a multi-character exploration of the complex, ever-evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”

Bentley, who recently starred in “The Hunger Games” and will appear in an upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic, will play “the handsome but arrogant Evan Foster, a bit of a blowhard who loves espousing his theories on human sexuality.”
