Sleeping with the Enemy
First screened some time in 1992 / Most recently screened in November 2015
Director: Joseph Ruben. Cast: Julia Roberts, Patrick Bergin, Kevin Anderson, Elizabeth Lawrence, Kyle Secor, Nancy Fish. Screenplay: Ronald Bass (based on the novel by Nancy Price).

Twitter Capsule: Bus ride, final standoff: some promising moments here, sunk by simplistic plot, clichéd villain. Prurient.

VOR:   Roberts's post-Pretty Woman wattage was such that a thriller this tentative cleared $100 million... and brought a lot of attention to domestic violence it hadn't always received.
