Dove Review

The suspense mounts in this dramatic and tragic story of a young woman so desperate for self-esteem and love that she resorts to a relationship with a married man that quickly begins to dominate her life. The performances are gripping, with Mark Harmon repeating his terrifying Ted Bundy performance – suave on the outside, but hiding a psychotic nature. Just beware, this is not for little ones or anyone easily upset by the subject matter. It is an intense mystery that looks closely at human behavior – social and antisocial. Not rated, it does contain implied adulterous affairs and two brief sexual situations (no nudity), but it does not glorify these acts. It makes it clear that sex before marriage, especially with a sociopath, can be a very disruptive and lead to self-destruction.
