New York City writing professor, Frannie Avery, has an affair with a police detective, who is investigating the murder of a beautiful young woman in her neighborhood.
Nicole Kidman turned down the role of Frannie, because at the time, she was going through her divorce from Tom Cruise. She thought the role would have been too emotionally draining. She does however take a co-producing credit.
What does "broccoli" mean"?
Frannie: Depends on the context. Pubic hair or marijuana. It's a noun.
Pauline: And "Virginia"?
Frannie: Vagina. As in, "He penetrated her Virginia with a hammer".
In the final scene, when Frannie is walking home from the lighthouse after escaping the killer, she is barefoot. When she reaches the garden of her apartment building, she is wearing sandals. When she reaches her apartment, she's barefoot again.
Dedicated to Alice Allegra Englert.
