OK TV movie
Candice Bergen plays a nervous thriller writer spending a night alone at a beach house after making her first public appearance in five years. She runs across an intruder, a young man who worships her, followed by a cop who comes to arrest the kid. Someone is out to get her, although it isn't clear who until the end. Her husband is on his way to the house as she tries to sort out who's who and what's what. Bergen is OK as a nervous Nelly, and the kid (played by Bug Hall) is pretty entertaining. Aussie actor Bryan Brown as the cop and Michael Murphy as the husband round out the cast of this telepicture based on an Ira Levin play. A good one for a slow Saturday night. Its release date (2003) ensures much use of cell phones, which is a good thing, because the story otherwise could just as easily be taking place in 1950..
