Disturbing psychological drama about Hunter, a newly pregnant deeply unhappy housewife from working class family who starts feeling suffocated in her marriage to a man from rich family who cares more about their unborn baby than about her. Although she continues to keep up appearances, her defense mechanism becomes eating increasingly dangerous small objects ranging from marbles to batteries. Eventually, she starts visiting a therapist while her husband hires a woman from Syria as their maid to watch her at home. One thing eventually becomes clear - in order to tackle her current issues, Hunter must first face her own tragic past.

this is a very good movie, in fact i've watched it twice and i'm still in the mood for a good thriller. the storyline is solid and keeps the viewers in suspense till the very end. the acting is good, most of the cast are good, the movie is very well made, especially the direction. this is the first movie i've ever watched that really gave me the feeling that i was in the movie, and i don't think i have ever felt that before. this movie has it all. drama, suspense, romance, drama, suspense, romance. good job guys!

The more I watch this movie, the more I like it. Every time it gets worse and worse. For once, I'd prefer to watch a movie over a person getting shot, but I still think it's a good movie. I think the movie is so bad, that it's not even worth watching. And it's the only movie that makes me so annoyed. The acting is horrible, the plot is horrible, and the effects are awful. The movie is bad in every way. But I think the director is making a point that I haven't seen in a long time, that we need a more realistic, less bloody movie that doesn't even have a decent story.

My wife and I loved this movie. The acting is good, the plot is gripping, the action is fast-paced and the pacing is very well-done. It really didn't go much wrong with the director or the actors. It was a very exciting, suspenseful and compelling movie. The audience was on edge. There were so many "who-what-when-how-why" questions, and the movie was so interesting. We kept on thinking about it, and it was too good to leave at the end. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants a very good movie experience.

This is one of the best movies I've ever seen. It's well-written, well-acted, well-directed and well-edited. The whole cast does an excellent job, including Kurt Russell and Diane Lane. There is so much to see in this movie that you can't stop watching it. I thought it was the best movie of 1997. I give it an 8 out of 10.

After several months of avoiding this movie, I finally decided to watch it. It's not that I expected anything from it, as I saw no reviews. I just needed a change from the tired clichéd movies that have been released in the past few years. What I saw was a movie that is a hybrid of gritty crime drama and psychological thriller. It was a lot of what I expected. I was thinking that it will be a straightforward police drama, with some mixture of mystery and thriller. Instead, it was a mixture of police drama, psychological thriller, and mystery. What I have to say is that the movie was very good, and it was a good watch, but that is not what you expect from a movie like this. I am not saying that the movie is bad, as it is a very good movie. I am saying that if you want to see a police drama, then you will not be disappointed. However, if you are looking for a psychological thriller, then you will be disappointed.

I'm not a huge fan of my own country, but it wasn't like I was a fan of the country, so I watched it, as it had some kind of international popularity and it was pretty good. I actually think that some of the best scenes of the movie are the ones where the young actor says the lines, and they look a lot like his real-life friends. And the way the movie ends was very kind of poetic. Overall, it was good, but I'm still not sure about the fact that it was in English, and I have to say that it was way better than I thought it would be. I recommend it to anyone who likes movies with more than two story lines, and if you're not familiar with the country, you may have to watch it again to understand the things that I didn't understand.
