Sharon Stone is an exceptionally good actor who has proved her skills on numerous occasions. My fav performance has to be as 'Ginger' in 'Casino' but she plays a very different character in this. She is Sofie, a hard working reporter who is into a story about how a politician is using the National Guard to protect the US/Mexican border with highly questionable tactics. Her brother Aaron (Billy Zane) goes missing after she hears a gunshot while speaking to him on the phone. The story is all about her search for Aaron and the trouble she ultimately gets in.
This is a very well acted movie and all though the budget is a mere $5 million, it does pretty well. The writing is good, the characters are very interesting and we see some high emotion performances. There is a rape scene that while not particularly graphic it's acted so well that it made me feel uncomfortable but I assume that was the whole point.
