Buckle up for the ultimate in twists, turns, red herrings and burns – in other words, exactly what we crave from erotic thrillers!

Andy (Bill Pullman) and Tracy (Nicole Kidman) Safian are a new couple settling into their old Victorian home, eager to start a family. Then Dr. Jed Hill (Alec Baldwin) shows up – an arrogant surgeon, the kind whose threats go something like “I’ll take out your lungs with an ice cream scoop”. He moves in on the top floor, his loud sexual encounters intolerable. This becomes a minor offence when he makes a bad call and removes Tracy’s reproductive anatomy during emergency surgery. Meanwhile, there’s a serial killer? As it all moves along, Aaron Sorkin’s script will keep you guessing who’s-zoomin’-who.
