Jane Campion's film has something that makes it worth seeing
In fact, much of Frannie's allure is that she isn't shy about her body, or even afraid to engage in sexual activity with Detective James Malloy (Mark Ruffalo) in her two room apartment on Washington Square
In the Red Turtle bar, Frannie (Meg Ryan) inadvertently watched a man, with a tattoo on his wrist, receiving oral gratification from a girl with blue fingernails having diamonds in them
Soon after, there was a homicide in Frannie's neighborhood The body of the woman, or part of her body, to be exact, was found in the garden outside her window The girl who was murdered was Angela Sands with the blue fingernails
As the psychopath strikes again and again, Frannie embarks on a powerfully physical sexual relationship with Malloy, despite her rising suspicions, later on, that the serial killer in question may very well be the 'good cop' with the 'three of spade' she saw once
Meg Ryan plays a very interior character living out of her unconscious emotions and actions, seeming always scared of what she wants Her only passion was poetry Her former lover Kevin Bacon mentally unbalancedthinks he should stick around because he slept with her twice Bacon maintains a threatening presence throughout the whole picture Jennifer Jason Leigh exquisitely sexy graces the screen as Frannie's half-sister Pauline In his few scenes with Ryan, Sharrieff Pugh proves to be sweet and charming but also bad and scary
