Sam Neill, Helena Bonham Carter
and Kristin Scott Thomas
form a winning combination in this offbeat comedy treat.
Quite by chance, depressed businessman Henry Bell (Neill) and quirky aristocrat Karen Knightly (Bonham Carter) save each other's life...just as they both attempt to leap from London's Tower Bridge. With renewed spirit, Karen quickly invents a plot of devilish retaliation against those who drove them to the edge: she'll punish the man who stole Henry's job and he'll destroy the life of the woman (Scott Thomas) who broke up Karen's love affair. Revenge becomes the name of the game in this "stylishly played black comedy" (Variety).
