The Banks family, a respectable Californian family, take in a relative - Will Smith, a street-smart teenager from Philadelphia. The idea is to make him respectable, responsible and mature, but Will has got other plans...
Whether it's lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis, the awkward small talk, moral ambiguity and existential woes of non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own.
An Irish immigrant lands in 1950s Brooklyn, where she quickly falls into a romance with a local. When her past catches up with her, however, she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.
This made for TV thriller (probably made in the wake of the success of The Net) is a play by the numbers affair, but is pretty reasonable, Gigi Rice in the lead role is likeable if a little slow to realize who's stalking her in the office. There's the obligatory red herring stalker, and a quick climactic ending. Of course the "interfaces" used for the net are ridiculous as always, using programs you've never seen before. And one word of warning, the set designer should be shot for such an UGLY house. The entire living room and kitchen are BROWN!! The seventies finished years ago!!!
