Editorial Reviews

Ray Winstone (Edge of Darkness, Sexy Beast) and Parminder Nagra (ER, Bend It Like Beckham) star in this dark story of desire and lust, loosely based on the 17th Century tale, The Changeling, by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley.

Shocked when her father (a British/Indian businessman) announces that he has arranged a marriage for her and desperate to escape this unwanted fate, Anjika (Parminder Nagra) accepts an offer from the family chauffeur (Winstone) to "fix it" in exchange for spending a night with him. That fateful night spawns secrets, sexual obsession, jealousy and lies that lead to deadly consequences.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, But So-So December 27, 2010
Format:DVD
"Compulsion" isn't a great movie, but I wasn't expecting it to be. I think it was a TV movie in the UK. Still, it was interesting, and I love Parminder Nagra. I did find it funny that she's playing a character who's about ten years her junior, but it works.

Basically it's about a young woman, Anjika, fresh out of college, whose father arranges a marriage for her. She already has a boyfriend whom she loves, but daddy dearest is firm.

That's where the chauffeur comes in, played by Ray Winstone (who vaguely reminds me of James Gandolfini). He's obsessed with Anjika and willing to do anything for her. In exchange for preventing her arranged marriage, he has a condition: one night with her. Okay, so there's a bit of an ick factor at this point. He's a bit older, fat, and unattractive. But this movie is called "Compulsion" and obviously he's not demanding a night of telling ghost stories and eating cookies by the fire. Eventually, Anjika caves, and so begins their affair. It turns into a full-blown affair, which leads to further complications. But I don't want to spoil the plot!

The ending, for me, was both twisted and a bit "Wait, what?" I actually liked it, but it's one of those endings that you either hate or you love. The only problem I had with it is that it left a question unanswered.

What I liked about this movie was the casting, the plot, and the ending, just to name a few key points.

What I didn't like so much? It was a little predictable, and the sex scenes aren't pleasant to watch. But I suppose they're not meant to be.

Overall, it's a good movie, a rather gripping watch, and a little bit above average.
