Psychiatrist Dr. Lila Colleti is divorcing her husband and is devastated when he wins custody of their two little girls, whom he gets largely because Lila's job, being a psychiatrist for the criminally insane at the local prison, is a potentially dangerous one that forces her to keep long, erratic hours. When one of Lila's patients, Ed Baikman, is released into a half-way house, he decides under the delusional influence of his psychosis to help her out by murdering her ex-husband and his girlfriend, and then threatening to tell the cops they'd planned it together when she refuses to become romantically involved with him. Though Lila's lover, police detective Macy Kobacek, stands by her loyally, Baikman does such an ingenious job of implicating Lila in the crime that even Macy begins to have his doubts about Lila's innocence.

This movie was surprisingly good. I did not expect to like it. I ended up liking it very much. I would suggest that it is best to watch it NOT reading too much about it. Gina Gershon does a great job....and there are twists and turns here that keep you guessing. I honestly didn't know who to believe right up to the very end of the movie. It had me on the edge of my seat. Gina Gershon's acting was superb, and really surprisingly good. It's a low budget flick, so I judge it from that standpoint and from that standpoint, it was excellent! It's definitely an "escape" movie. LOL. I give it an 8 out of 10, but with a qualifier: that is, that I am judging it against other of these types of movies, not against say, "Psycho"...against other low budgets, this is definitely at the top of the pile.
