Thriller specialist Philip Noyce (Patriot Games, The Bone Collector) directs three splendid actors. Sam Neill (Event Horizon, Bicentennial Man), Nicole Kidman (Eyes Wide Shut) and Billy Zane (Titanic) – in riveting performances.
Joe and Rae Ingram (Neill and Kidman) do the right thing and rescue the half-delirious sole survivor (Zane) of a crippled schooner. But soon the stranger will plunge the unwary pair into an intense battle of cat and mouse. And life or death.
