When a man selects a mail order bride, he is surprised to see the beauty who appears before him. She alleges that she sent false photos to him to assure that he would love her for what she is and not for her beauty. However, what she is is a con artist, prostitute, and actress, who teams with a fellow actor to steal money from men. What she does not expect is that she falls in love with her new husband and ultimately must decide between him and her sadistic former lover. Contains explicit sex including sadistic acts as Thomas Jane cuts Jolie's back with a knife as part of their lovemaking.Written by

Approximately 4 minutes of sexually explicit material has been cut from cable showings, even on the late-night showings on non-commercial premium cable channels. Both R-rated and Unrated editions have been released on Region 1 DVD. The original theatrical release did contain explicit sex scenes, but as currently shown on cable, every time someone is about to go to bed with someone else, the scene fades out and returns to the same locale the next morning. In the original version, Julia's first sexual encounter with Luis is graphically shown, as is their encounter when he finds her in the hotel. See more »

Great acting, original story
Dispite the critics dislike of the film, I have to say that its problably the best dramatic flick I've seen this year. I especially
enjoyed the acting. I have to say it was beautifully directed and the screenwriter did an amazing job to hold all that together. Angelina's best film to date has to be this one. Antonio Banderas was just mindblowing. The set design was great. The movies topic on a mailbride's secret motives and a good intentioned man with a good mix in characters. I reccomend this to anyone in a start os a serious relationship.
