Rating:
R
Captives is an erotic thriller about a forbidden love affair between a young dentist and a misplaced convict. Young, beautiful, and in the final stages of a bitter divorce, Rachel Clifford (Julia Ormond) seeks a job as a prison dentist in order to help be of service and take her mind off her current trouble. Taken with the young doctor, the convicted Philip Chaney (Tim Roth) finds a way to arrange to meet her on a day release. As the two get to know each other, chemistry grows quickly, and a complicated love affair ensues. Although he is not a criminal, being held captive inside the prison walls has turned Chaney into a changed man, and he struggles mightily with the question of whether to pursue a real relationship or manipulate Clifford for his own means. To add to the turmoil, when fellow prisoners hear of their involvement, things take a turn for the worse, and it appears that no happy ending is in sight. Angela Pope directs this enigmatic feature that is as tender as it is menacing. Brilliantly acted, from the lead characters down, Captives is a moving, gut wrenching story that is a must see by all accounts.moreless
