Storyline

Charles is worn down by his home life where he and his wife struggle to cope with the demands of their daughter's illness and his job. When he meets Lucinda on the train to work in Chicago, there is an immediate spark between them. Soon they are doing lunch; dinner and drinks follow. This leads to an adulterous rendezvous in a hotel. However, no sooner have they torn each other's clothes off than their room is invaded by a thief who beats Charles and rapes Lucinda. Because of the illicit nature of their relationship, Charles agrees with Lucinda who is reluctant to go to the police and soon finds he is powerless to resist the demands of the thief.

Trivia

When LaRoche goes to Schine's house, he tells Schine's daughter in French: "Je m'appelle LaRoche, comme une petite roche qui va bientôt baiser ton père par derrière." This translates as: "My name is LaRoche, like a little rock who will soon screw your father from behind." Then, he tells her that in English, it means: "My name is LaRoche, it means a rock. Like the little rocks rolling down a river." See more »

Goofs

When Dexter asks Schine for help on his baseball quiz, he mispronounces the last name of Red Sox third baseman Rico Petrocelli; there should be no "ch" sound in his name. See more »

Great Movie! No Spoilers
12 November 2005 | by ronipSee all my reviews

Great movie, Clive Owen was brilliant and its a good change for Jennifer, pure fast paced entertainment, just what it was meant to be! I hope Jennifer does a lot more movies like this to get rid of the good girl type cast. I really liked RZA, his acting was great and his character was believable and very funny. The movie was fast and edge of the seat almost from the start. I found some parts predictable but that didn't ruin the movie for me. Some of the things that I predicted happened, but not when and how, so it still keeps you guessing. I buy a lot of DVD's and this movie is going on my list of movies to buy for sure. I definitely recommend this movie.
