Review

Our Score
The physical and psychological impact of stalking is explored in this thought-provoking TV movie. Based on real events, it's enhanced by Amanda Righetti's convincing turn as an outgoing coffee shop worker whose entire life is adversely affected when pasty-faced barista Will Estes becomes obsessed with her. Righetti (who plays Grace Van Pelt in TV hit The Mentalist) completely nails her character's fear and vulnerability, adding emotional meat to the simple and action-light narrative. Seeing her unravel, with apparently no one able to help, creates a rising sense of viewer indignation that shoots off the scale when the perpetrator's shockingly smug dad (Harry Hamlin) tries to officially cover up his son's increasingly disturbing behaviour. Consequently, the quick and rather sedate climax may disappoint some people, though it is in keeping with the film's predominantly sober approach.

Summary

A woman is driven to despair when an obsessed former colleague starts stalking her. When she discovers the police are powerless to intervene, her fear leads her to become a recluse. However, when her tormentor begins to target the people closest to her, she realises she must find the strength to fight back. Thriller, with Amanda Righetti and Catherine Hicks.
