Storyline

Charles is worn down by his home life where he and his wife struggle to cope with the demands of their daughter's illness and his job. When he meets Lucinda on the train to work in Chicago, there is an immediate spark between them. Soon they are doing lunch; dinner and drinks follow. This leads to an adulterous rendezvous in a hotel. However, no sooner have they torn each other's clothes off than their room is invaded by a thief who beats Charles and rapes Lucinda. Because of the illicit nature of their relationship, Charles agrees with Lucinda who is reluctant to go to the police and soon finds he is powerless to resist the demands of the thief.

Goofs

Throughout the movie, each time the Chicago Metra train pulled into Union Station, the PA announcer kept saying that it was the end of the red line. The CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) uses color coded routes, and the Metra system uses actual named routes (Metra Milwaukee District North). Also, the view of the train entering the city shows it entering from the south, but Charles' briefcase tag says he lives in Wilmette which is north of the city. See more »

Slow t first but dynamic ending
11 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the beginning the movie seems to be dragging and just OK but the last hour is dynamic. Very climactic.

Definitely not a movie to bring the kids to though. There is violence, sex, and foul language.

It is a movie that I could watch again, but the mystery of not knowing is part of what makes it so great.

Aniston was great. She was sassy and sophisticated, but you had to like her.

There is so much to say, but I don't want to give anything away. I suggest seeing it, but maybe at home instead of the theater.
