Synopsis
A lavish country party that should have been the best night of their lives unexpectedly begets a shocking cycle of violence for a confident career woman and her handsome young love interest in this brutal and unforgiving thriller starring Gillian Anderson and Danny Dyer. Adam (Dyer) is just getting his career off of the ground, so when the beautiful, older, and much more professionally experienced Alice (Anderson) invites him to a party, he readily accepts. Upon arriving at the classy soirée the pair immediately discover that they share an exhilarating sense of sexual chemistry, eventually wandering off alone for some highly charged sex. Still reeling from their earth-shaking bout of lovemaking, Adam and Alice speed down a quiet country road and suddenly find themselves thrown into the middle of a vicious attack in which both are severely injured. But their physical scars don't run nearly as deep as their emotional scars, and before long Alice becomes overtaken by her drive for vengeance and determined to make her tormentors pay for their violent transgression. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Revenge is... by talltale September 22, 2007 - 4:37 PM PDT

Appearing on DVD in the same week that the Jodie Foster/Neil Jordan revenge thriller "The Brave One" opened in theaters, CLOSURE makes an interesting comparative study. Much shorter in length, it has a very small and very good cast, headed by Gillian Anderson (yes "The X Files," but how about "The House of Mirth"?) and Danny Dyer (from the fun and scary "Severance," which is also out this week on DVD). The plot is straight-forward: Bad things happen to good people who then want revenge. But while racing quickly from A to Z, the movie implicates you in strange ways, making the good guys problemed and the bad guy not as bad as we imagined. "Closure" ain't great, but it's certainly OK. And it's always worthwhile to confront the old eye-for-an-eye syndrome (done rather literally here) in any kind of interesting manner--which this odd and rather nasty little movie manages decently enough.
