OK Canadian crime-romance film
6 July 2002 | by (Vancouver, British Columbia) – See all my reviews

A businessman (Craven) is drawn to a mysterious billboard model (Cattrall) who he meets at the `Palais Royale' nightclub. He is soon drawn into her connections with organised crime, first acting as a getaway driver, then as the successful operator of some "shell' companies the mob owns. Unfortunately, he runs afoul of Cattrall's psychotic assassin boyfriend and is soon trying to avoid both him and the local detectives. Set in Toronto in what appears to be the early-1930's, the film tells a familiar tale with some measure of success; fans of Cattrall will enjoy seeing her in this crime-romance outing.
