Jane Campion
Released:
2003
Rating:
R
In the Cut is an acclaimed 2003 mystery thriller directed by Jane Campion (The Piano).The legendary Meg Ryan (When Harry Met Sally, City of Angels, Sleepless in Seattle) plays Frannie, a college English instructor who is instinctively drawn to the seamier side of life. When women in her Manhattan neighborhood start falling victim to a grizzly serial killer, Frannie, as a possible witness, becomes a prime source of interest, both professionally and personally, for a homicide detective named Malloy (Mark Ruffalo, You Can Count On Me, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Zodiac), who has some troubling sexual proclivities of his own to deal with. Attracted by his edgy darkness and smoldering sexuality, Frannie succumbs to his advances, fully cognizant of the possible danger he represents. Is the law enforcement official as much of a threat to this young woman as the psychopath going about town decapitating and dismembering the local ladies?
