In director John Stewart Muller’s stylish psychological thriller, Mira Sorvino stars as Veronica, a politician’s wife whose brief affair with a troubled young artist comes back to haunt her when he begins to infiltrate every part of her life. While her husband (Cary Elwes) and daughter (Katherine McNamara) are away, New Orleans psychiatrist Veronica Simon (Mira Sorvino) enjoys a weekend fling with Victor (Christopher Backus), an alluring young sculptor. But after Veronica calls off the affair, Victor refuses to let go and will stop at nothing to have Veronica for himself. Just how far will Victor go to get what he wants, and is there anything Veronica can do to stop his mad obsession before it destroys her family?
Any film that usually ends with a question and especially the nature of this question, had our protagonist pulled off the scheme of a lifetime?
With her husband running for the senate, a rumored affair he has allegedly had and an excitable daughter are all enough to cope with along with her position as a psychologist.
While viewing art work, she meets up with the young artist and quickly hops off to bed with him. The film then becomes a sort of fatal attraction in the reverse. The guy just will not let go and bedlam results.
She is finally able to turn the tables on him but not before he has made her a widow. Her visit to the prison where he is staying is memorable, as he now appears to be of sound mind and what he is alleging is not exactly off-the wall. Real questions are posed as the film ends.
