Rapture, The

The acclaimed film The Rapture is a sexual and spiritual awakening. Written and directed by Michael Tolkin (writer-producer of The Player), this powerful thriller stars Mimi Rogers (The Door in the Floor) and David Duchovny ("The X-Files"). Rogers gives the performance of a lifetime as Sharon, a bored, beautiful telephone operator who seeks excitement in orgiastic sex with strangers. Later, tormented by feelings of emptiness, she attempts suicide. Comforted by members of a cult-like religion who are preparing for the second coming of Christ - "The rapture" - Sharon undergoes a religious conversion that is hallucinatory, frightening and ultimately tragic. Praised for its power and originality, The Rapture is "unnerving and outrageously haven't seen anything like it." (Newsweek)
