A troubled young man retreats from the big city and his ex-wife for the tranquility of a small town. He is drawn into a relationship with a young woman whose boyfriend goes missing, leaving the new arrival as a suspect.
In the opening scene in the airport as the camera moves in through the passengers toward Julia Stiles from behind, the camera approaches from behind the left shoulder of a stranger and hits him hard enough that his head first snaps hard to the right, then bounces back to the left into the frame again just before he moves out of the camera's view.

Stockard Channing has always been a terrific actress and her excellent performance comes as no surprise but Julia Stiles is also very good thanks to a thought provoking script. I've always had my suspicions about Stiles and here she shows she also has some good "Stuff". I hope she gets offered more films like this instead of the teenage fare where all that is needed is attitude. As good as Stiles is its still Channing's film. Youth cannot overcome experience, not here anyway.
