If you have ever feared being consumed by a relationship ...
Anne Brochet and James Spader give excellent performances. Though the storyline is not particularly orignial I found both to be very believable characters. (Anne Brochet, hauntingly so) The plot is a more likely, and subtle, variation on the "Fatal Attraction" theme. Unlike Glen Close's character in Fatal Attraction Sarah (Brochet) is a very likable and attractive woman ... well, except for a little problem with "abandonment issues". <smile> The power of the conflict this movie generates is tied to Spader's (and the viewers) empathy for Sarah. I would highly recommend this movie for those viewers that tend to like "character driven" movies.
