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.

Ends well over a slow start
15 February 2017 | by d-j-mattsonSee all my reviews

This is one of those movies that my wife picked out for us to watch several years ago. I thought surely it was some sappy love story as it stars Jennifer A. whom I am not a fan of. The movie did surprise me as it played and the story unfolded. It was well done overall and surely was not of the romance genre. Its fairly believable with a typical business man, his ho-hum life, family, work etc etc and then walks in Jennifer A. who turns it around for him, yet the situation turns violent and the character cannot go to the police or his wife. The ending was well played and thought out with a few unexpected surprise, twists and lots of decent action. It ends with a man doing what he must to survive and protect himself and his future. I recommend watching this movie, its a few years old now but well worth the time.
