"A classic thriller." -Jim Whaley, PBS Cinema Showcase
In this suspenseful romantic thriller, Julia Roberts stars as Laura, a young woman who thinks she's found the man of her dreams in Martin (Patrick Bergin). But after they are married, Laura discovers the "real" Martin: compulsive, controlling and dangerously violent. Faking her own death, Laura starts life over in a small Midwestern town. But even with a new identity, Laura lives in fear, stalked by the memory of Martin's brutality-a memory that terrifyingly comes to life when he discovers she is still alive.
