A paranoid housewife finds that her worst fears are merely dwarfed be the terrifying reality of her dangerous obsession in director Ann Turner's psychologically bent study in fear starring Susan Sarandon, Sam Neill, and Emily Blunt. Convinced that her husband's beautiful co-worker Mara (Blunt) is seeking to rob her of her family and steal her identity, Sophie Hartley (Sarandon) finds nothing but incredulous stares when she voices her concern to her disbelieving family and friends. As Sophie struggles to maintain her slipping sanity and the grip of paranoia continues to tighten its constricting grip, her acute obsession finds Sophie becoming her own worst nightmare. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Quite Resistible by talltale July 18, 2006 - 8:33 AM PDT
Consistently interesting but finally a failure on every level and in every genre it attempts--soap opera, thriller, psychological study, family drama and more--IRRESISTIBLE (a pointless title) sports good performances from Susan Sarandon and Emily Blunt ("Gideon's Daughter," "The Devil Wears Prada") and a rather lame one (probably the script's fault) from Sam Neill.

All the elements are provided for good possibilities in any one of the genres mentioned, but Australian writer/director Ann Turner conflates them all to little purpose and apparently does not yet possess the chops to hammer out a decent finished product in any of them. If you've the mind, go ahead and rent; you'll have experienced worse. And we hope Ms. Sarandon enjoyed her time Down Under.
