Two years after her husband Alan died, environmental designer Susan won't admit she is lonely, but her business partner Peggy sets her up with Kevin, a financial adviser. The relationship is supposed to be professional but later develops into something more.
Susan's sister Justine gets money from a trust fund (so their parents were rich), but not too much at one time because her husband Jack, who is abusive, might spend it all.
Susan starts getting mysterious messages and phone calls after a female neighbor says Susan shouldn't close her blinds because she 'likes to watch'. And then the situation escalates into something truly frightening.
Nastassja Kinski did a good job except for the accent. If her character had been adopted, it would have been understandable. But her sister had no accent. I think Kinski was trying to talk like a 'regular American' but wasn't quite succeeding, which was distracting.
The standout performance came from Gordon Pinsent as a quirky yet dignified private detective Susan hired. I liked his classical music (which he pretended to conduct), his dial telephone, and his early 1970's Chevy.
I was impressed with the lobby Susan designed in a downtown skyscraper located in an unnamed city--it even had full-size trees! Perhaps it wasn't just done for the movie but it was a great job by someone.
The mystery was interesting, and although there was some violence, it wasn't too explicit. There were many possible leads in the case, but the final solution certainly wasn't one I expected. The ending turned out to be quite exciting.
For a TV-movie, this was pretty good.
