American ex-pat living in London, Heather Graham leaves her
lover after getting the fuck of her life from mountaineer Joseph Fiennes when he's out and about promoting the book about his intripid exploits. They marry soon after and it doesn't take long
before she uncovers some skeletons in his closet.
Joseph Fiennes is given very little to do except mope around
looking creepy, while Graham is given even less, miscast as a doe-eyed beauty who gets her kit off at every opportunity. There's some steamy sex scenes, including a little bondage and
asphyxiation to get the heart beating faster, but aside from that, a very boring and inconsequential thriller.
