Trivia

Selma Blair and Rachel McAdams were two of several actresses who spoke to Vanity Fair magazine in Oct. 2017 about sexual harassment they suffered at the hands of director James Toback. Blair and McAdams, who were just starting their careers and admittedly naive, said their experiences occurred during meetings to discuss Harvard Man. He terrified Blair by claiming he could have her parents killed. Then bullied her into taking her clothes off and performing sexual acts. He tried the same with McAdams, but she refused and left the hotel. Years later when actresses started speaking out about Toback's harassment (over 200 to date), he denied all accusations and said he never met any of them, including Blair and McAdams. See more »

Powerhouse of all youd want in a movie
16 March 2004 | by MNunesSee all my reviews

I watched this movie with my two oldest daughters, who are both fans, as I am of the two main actors. It actually gave us plenty to talk about and has certainly opened their ideas to drugs and what happens when they are abused. I think and hope that they have been put off for life! Adrian, although relatively unknown in our country, is a star in the making and heres hoping there will be more of him to watch in the future. Sarah Michelle is a firm favourite among our family and is always at her best in seductive, bad girl roles. The storyline was certainly filled with twists and unexpected. This movie has just been released on video and dvd in our country, so it has been a long wait. But certainly worth it. I have already told other people to watch it, as I am a fanatic moviewatcher and whenever a movie comes along that really gets me thinking, I do go all out and tell other people to watch it.
