Meg Ryan, in an attempt to break out of her sweet, blond, comic romance roles takes on the part of a sexually repressed teacher who engages in an affair with a suspected serial killer. The sex scenes are appropriately steamy, but a weak plot and so-so acting conspire to undercut the suspense. Based on the Susanna Moore novel. 113m/C VHS, DVD . US AU Meg Ryan, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kevin Bacon, Nick Damici, Sharrieff Pugh; D: Jane Campion; W: Jane Campion, Susanna Moore; C: Dion Beebe; M: Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson.
