Venus Rising ★★ 1995 (R)

In the year 2000, Eve and August manage to escape from the island prison on which they were raised. They discover that the mainland world features emotions that are controlled by drugs and love is only a game on the virtual reality network. Hunted, the fugitives try to fit in and figure out what's real and what's fantasy. Be forewarned—Fairchild's role is very small. 91m/C VHS, DVD . Audie England, Costas Mandylor, Billy Wirth, Morgan Fairchild; D: Leora Barish; W: Leora Barish.
