A troubled young man retreats from the big city and his ex-wife for the tranquility of a small town. He is drawn into a relationship with a young woman whose boyfriend goes missing, leaving the new arrival as a suspect.
When the three are in the hotel room together, it is obviously dark outside and the time is even stated at being "midnight". However, when the television is turned on, the news channel is running live stock quotes (something that would only happen during the day) and the time on the television reads "1:30PM" See more »
I've seen a thousand girls just like you; rich families, all the opportunities and you throw it all away. You put on this act, disaffected, obnoxious, talented but undiscovered. You know what? You all end up with your sensitive husbands, pregnant, coming back pleading for a job and making my coffee.

This could have been a very interesting film. Stockard Channing turns in her usual phenomenal performance, but even her formidable skills can't save this one. It begins as a fascinating character study of a woman at the top (Channing) with very little to show for it, and had it remained Channing's story, it might have worked. However, the very forced introduction of a vaguely threatening younger woman takes the script into an plot filled with implausible choices and sometimes laughable dialogue - at the very moments when it should be most dramatic. This film could have seethed with undercurrents and subtle sexual tension. Instead, we're hit over the head repeatedly with "tension" so overt it renders any chemistry between the two actresses absolutely lifeless. Too bad - this film could've had a good thing going.
