That was the day I died and someone else was saved
What a great movie. One of Julia Robert's best performances.
The start of the movie seems fine Laura and Martin seem like a happily married couple, then you see a scene where Martin berates her about hanging the bathroom towels out of order and then, Laura desperately tries to arrange the tins in the cupboard exactly right. Everything is definitely not alright when you see Martin punch Laura in the head.
This is the story of how Laura fakes her own death and tries to make a new life for herself.
You really feel for Laura and Martin is a really evil guy, who is portrayed very scarily.
The music is beautiful and sad, one of the loveliest soundtracks I have ever heard.
I really recommend this film to other women, although it is not aimed entirely at the female audience, I feel we get more out of it
