Storyline

Psychiatrist Dr. Lila Colleti is divorcing her husband and is devastated when he wins custody of their two little girls, whom he gets largely because Lila's job, being a psychiatrist for the criminally insane at the local prison, is a potentially dangerous one that forces her to keep long, erratic hours. When one of Lila's patients, Ed Baikman, is released into a half-way house, he decides under the delusional influence of his psychosis to help her out by murdering her ex-husband and his girlfriend, and then threatening to tell the cops they'd planned it together when she refuses to become romantically involved with him. Though Lila's lover, police detective Macy Kobacek, stands by her loyally, Baikman does such an ingenious job of implicating Lila in the crime that even Macy begins to have his doubts about Lila's innocence.

She's in the profession?
26 August 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Gina Gershon stars in Borderline where she plays a psychiatrist who works with the criminally insane, making decisions on parole issues as to whether these folks can function in society. She's got just the background for it having some childhood issues herself. For that reason alone I can't see how she would get a license in the profession.

Still that is the premise and add to it she's going through a bitter custodial battle for her two daughters which she loses. But as was said in the classic Casino, she got an out of court settlement when her ex-husband and his girlfriend wind up murdered.

Who did it, any number of her patients with whom she's so popular could have. They all like her because she has a big say on when they might get sprung. Looking the best for it is Sean Patrick Flannery who has some transference issues as he has fallen for his therapist big time.

The cops are losing their professionalism too. The lead detective on the case Michael Biehn has fallen for Gershon and they're kanoodling hot and heavy. But for that he might have arrested her.

Borderline is a rather far-fetched tale that really never gets off the ground. It's with some rather far-fetched material for a plot that our players do their best with.
