A tale about a happily married couple who would like to have children. Tracy teaches art, Andy's a college dean. Things are never the same after she is taken to hospital and operated upon by Jed, a "know all" doctor.
An American girl inherits a fortune and falls into a misguided relationship with a gentleman confidence artist whose true nature, including a barbed and covetous disposition, turns her life into a nightmare.
Suzanne Stone (Maretto) knows exactly what she wants. She wants to be a television newscaster and she is willing to do anything to get what she wants. What she lacks in intelligence, she makes up for in cold determination and diabolical wiles. As she pursues her goal with relentless focus, she is forced to destroy anything and anyone that may stand in her way, regardless of the ultimate cost or means necessary. Written by

Joaquín Phoenix (Jimmy Emmett) and Nicole Kidman (Suzanne Stone) went on to co-star in films with Sean Penn; Phoenix in U Turn (1997) and Kidman in The Interpreter (2005). Incidentally Penn also starred in Milk (2008) directed by this film's Gus Van Sant. See more »
On the night that Larry is murdered, Suzanne, her parents and Larry's parents are all shown sitting inside the apartment where he was shot. As a murder scene, it would have been taped off for forensic examination. There is no way it would have been contaminated on that level. It would have been at least a week before anyone outside of the CSI team were allowed in. See more »
i never have been much of a Nicole Kidman fan or one of Gus Van Zant as well. i've always found Nicole to have a refreshing understated beauty but not much of an actress.
well this movie definitely made a believer in me as far as her acting skills and screen presence are concerned. since she's australian, you'll be surprised at her her american accent in this movie is natural, and full of frisky character. she also lets a naturally sexual side of herself come through that gives the movie the added spark that it called for.
the whole movie is well written, well acted and the movie had a wickedly dark sense of humor. the ending is predictable but also kind of abrupt and could have been handled a LOT better and keeps this from being a 9.
i truly feel that Nicole Kidman should have gotten at least an oscar nomination for best actress the year this movie came out. trust me, her performance is THAT good and the movie is quite enjoyable as well.
