About the Movie

Two-time Academy-Award® winner Sally Field, Kiefer Sutherland and Ed Harris star in this riveting thriller about the search for justice in an unjust world. Karen McCann's (Sally Field) orderly life is shattered when a stranger breaks into her home and murders her 17-year-old daughter. But shock and grief turn into rage and disbelief when the killer (Sutherland) is released on a legal technicality. When he commits another murder - and is set free once again - Karen is determined to make him pay for his crimes. Alienating her husband (Harris) and her friends, Karen quietly and methodically devises a deadly plan for retribution. Directed by Oscar® winner John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy, Marathon Man) and costarring Joe Mantegna and Beverly D'Angelo.

Rotten: Never in his varied career has Mr. Schlesinger made a film as mean-spirited and empty as this. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Aug 4, 2009

Rotten: Dumb dips from oppressive to offensive in this Sally Field suspense drama, which actually comes out for vigilantism. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 4, 2009

Rotten: A grimly distasteful revenge thriller masquerading as serious social commentary. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A B movie that somehow won the lottery and got an A-movie cast and director. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jun 29, 2011
