Laura decides not to let him win. She does not want to be his 'victim'. May be an official complaint about Farley would solve her problem? Written by
This type of film could seem over-the-top, but thanks to a believable performance by Richard Thomas, and a surprisingly decent performance by Brooke Shields, the viewer is interested in the story, and not distracted by personalities.
You will see some interesting information regarding stalking, as well. For example, when Thomas speaks to Penny (human resources) who divulges Laura's personal information (including her birthday, residence and family information). This film was made in 1993, and I was surprised that the company was not held liable for Laura's problems with this man.
As this is based on a true story, we see Richard Thomas gradually unraveling as he stalks Laura (Shields), he seems initially harmless, then obsessed. The breaking point occurs when he is fired. He has, he says to his friends, nothing to lose, and starts asking if the office is protected with bullet-proof glass. His co-workers laugh, thinking this is a joke.
This is an interesting and true story, which is well-presented. 9/10
