Roberts plays Laura Burney, the wife of a rich investment counselor, Martin (Patrick Bergin). Martin appreciates his wife as a trophy, but at home he abuses her for not keeping the house as clean as he would like it. The verbal abuse descends into physical violence --so much so that Laura decides to disappear rather than live a life under Martin as a brutalized slave. Laura fakes her own death by drowning, and relocates to Cedar Falls, Iowa, where she changes her name to Sara Waters. She starts a relationship with her friendly Iowa neighbor Ben Woodward (Kevin Anderson), but her happiness is short-lived. Martin has discovered that Laura has staged her drowning and is coming to Iowa to reclaim his possession. Paul Brenner, RoviRead Less

Julia Roberts and Patrick Bergin truly captured the essence of victim and abuser in this movie. This will definitely be a classic especially for those who study the human psyche. It was a great learning tool for my mental health psychiatric nursing lecture course.

Roberts does a good job in this thriller about a wife pursued by her psycho OCD husband. Seems to start slow but the suspense builds very well as the movie proceeds. Good plot. My wife and I both liked it.
