She can’t rest easy without getting to the bottom of the issue, and this curiosity leads to her entrapment at the bottom of his secret bunker. There, Jessica comes across Robin, another woman that Simon holds captive.

The Michel Poulette directorial’s haunting backdrop and eerie choice of locations further upraise the movie’s suspense. If your inner movie aficionado is curious to learn more about its filming sites, here’s all you need to know.
Kept Woman Filming Locations
‘Kept Woman’ was entirely filmed in Québec, specifically in Montréal and Longueuil. Principal photography for the movie seemingly took place in late 2014. Québec is globally recognized for its production crew’s professionalism and unmatched skills. A few tourist sites that one must visit in the “la belle province” include Quartier du Petit Champlain, Mont-Tremblant, Hôtel de Glace, and The Montreal Botanical Garden. Now, let’s closely examine the specific places that appear in the Lifetime thriller!
Pivotal sequences of ‘Kept Woman’ were lensed in Montreal, the creative hub that doubles for the streets of Paris, New York, and London. The versatility of its terrain makes the city of festivals a perfect fit for almost all settings, eras, and backdrops. Besides, filmmakers prefer the city due to its tax incentives and cost-saving benefits. The Olympic Stadium, Old Port’s Quebec Court, Victoria’s Secret store, and Mel’s Cité du Cinema are among Montreal’s most recognized shooting locations. Other movies with similar genres and themes shot in the picturesque city include ‘Scream VI,’ ‘Arrival,’ and ‘Three Pines.’
The production team of ‘Kept Woman’ recorded several scenes in Longueuil, a city with many renowned attractions, such as Parc Michel-Chartrand, Le Vieux-Longueuil, Fort Chambly National Historic Site, and Parc de la Cité. The unique urban and natural landscape mix has proven resourceful for many movies and TV shows. The diverse culture and population are a bonus, along with its eccentric architectural style. ‘The Far Shore,’ ‘Mommy’s Prison Secret,’ and ‘The Neighbor’ are three more projects taped in Longueuil.
