Chloe, a rising young fashion model, is anxious for a break from her hectic schedule and a series of unexplained, anonymous phone calls. When her new boyfriend invites her to spend a weekend in the country with his former band members, she jumps at the chance. The quiet weekend away rapidly degenerates following the unexpected arrival of loverboy’s wife. Chloe is left stranded in a remote mansion with a group of people she doesn’t know. Waking in the middle of the night in a strange bed, unsure whether she has been drugged, her worst fears are confirmed when she discovers a videotape. Trapped, miles from anywhere, Chloe finds the people she fears most become her allies, while those she trusts are the most dangerous of all. From Australian writer-director John Duigan, winner of our 1998 Grand Prix with Lawn Dogs, comes this classic Hitchcockian psychological thriller with a very contemporary twist. John Duigan’s work (The Leading Man, Sirens, The Year My Voice Broke) spans both film and television, for which he has won many awards, including the Australian Academy Award for Best Film, Best Director and Best Screenplay. Jessica Alba (Never Been Kissed, Idle Hands), soon to star in the title role of James Cameron’s Tvseries Dark Angel, plays Chloe. Iain Glen, most recently seen opposite Nicole Kidman in The Blue Room, is Stan. Jeanne Tripplehorn (Basic Instinct, Waterworld, Mickey Blue Eyes) plays Rachel and Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting, Judge Dredd, The Acid House) is Gordon.
