Best reason to see this movie: May Karasun
30 October 1998 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

The best reason to see this movie isn't for the two lead actors Billy Zane and Joan Severence. It's the supporting actress May Karasun. Joan plays a bored housewife and Billy plays a lawncare man to whom Joan is attracted. She sneaks into his trailer and falls asleep. Not knowing she is inside, Billy hooks up his trailer and drives off to Lake Consequence. When Joan wakes up, she goes outside to examine her new surroundings. Billy is gone, so she goes down to the lake shore where May Karasun bursts from the water nude, startling Joan. May is a beautiful creature and is unashamed to be seen skinny-dipping in a lake. This scene goes on for quite awhile and is, in my opinion, the best part of the movie. Eventually Billy returns, the three become friends, and Joan is led on an adventure of sexual freedom. Like most of Zalman King's movies, there isn't any hardcore sex, though this movie does involve a menage'-a-trois scene in a hot tub as part of Joan's sexual experimentation. Overall, one of the better "Red Shoe Diaries" style movies and one worth keeping around.
