HILLSBOROUGH, NCUnfolding, the erotic drama from Adam & Eve Pictures and awarded female director Kay Brandt, was named by Adult Empire as 2019’s number one best-selling feature. The honor is only the latest accolade for the movie, which was released a little more than one year ago.

“We are excited to see Unfolding reach these amazing heights,” said Rachel Vigneaux, executive producer for Adam & Eve Pictures. “It’s a testament to the power of storytelling, production values, an amazing vision by a talented female director and her crew, plus the natural talents of a carefully selected all-star cast.”

Based on a novel by New York Times bestselling author Selena Kitt, Unfolding tells the story of Charlie (Cherie DeVille) who lives a normal, happy life with her dedicated and loving husband Jack (Seth Gamble). But when Charlie discovers Jack's interest in pushing the boundaries of their traditional marriage, she confronts her own hidden desires as they spend a weekend at a romantic resort designed for couples who want to explore their sexual fantasies with other passionate couples. The film’s cast features top adult stars Cherie DeVille, India Summer and Abella Danger, as well as Seth Gamble, Small Hands and Codey Steele.

The movie has earned much critical acclaim, including that from HotMovies’ Stoney Rubble who wrote, “Unfolding is a beautifully-shot depiction of sexual exploration in a marriage. It's always so damn refreshing to watch such a healthy married relationship on screen.”
