Mare Winningham gives a nice, understated performance in this different kind of thriller.
16 August 2001 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting psychological thriller with fine performances. The production values and music also add to this story of a woman with a secret from a former life who is terrorized by a mysterious person from her past.
