When Gracie's basketball hits her foot and rolls away, actress Tessa Allen did that in one take. The sky and lighting were changing and they needed to get it in one shot otherwise production would have been delayed later on because the cast and crew were changing locations the next day. See more »

... but you cannot call me Slim.
But I never call you Slim. I don't think you are that slim.

I'm not sure why some viewers compare this with "Sleeping with the Enemy", although there are some similarities, however small.
This is a a story that starts with a fairy-tale wedding, then a birth and all seems to go well. But then Slim finds out that her husband is seeing someone else. Of course, he reassures her that she's the only one that matters.
Then, when physical abuse starts, you know she's got to get out. Which she does, with some difficulty. And she starts to run from place to place, always knowing he's somehow tracking her.
The part I most enjoyed was seeing Noah Wyle play a creepy guy, so different from the roles he usually plays.
And then the end, with Slim getting martial arts training and sneaking into his home to prepare to "finish him", which she does by happenstance. I don't usually enjoy that type of violence, but was happy to see a woman stand up for herself and her child.
Enjoyed it a lot!
