When a disgraced former college dean has a romance with a mysterious younger woman haunted by her dark, twisted past, he is forced to confront a shocking fact about his own life that he has kept secret for 50 years.
An actor whose classical training shows, Anthony Hopkins has played everything from slighted Moore Othello (a tad surprising given his complexion) to conveniently named cannibal Hannibal Lector. Regardless of role, his inherent sophistication, charm, and quiet strength always shine through.
These modern romantic thrillers may not share the same plot-lines as real life love, but they do convey the terror, excitement, and danger of giving yourself to another. So if you're bored of languid schmaltz-fests, pop one of these on and get the blood pumping!
