MISERY
1990, Warner Bros., 107 min, USA, Dir: Rob Reiner

When novelist James Caan has a car accident, he's lucky - or so it would seem - to be rescued by his "biggest fan," a nurse (Kathy Bates) eager to care for him. Unfortunately, Caan's would-be savior is not happy with the direction his writing is taking and will stop at nothing - including murder - to "help" him. Rob Reiner's expertly staged adaptation of Stephen King's bestseller is a masterpiece of claustrophobic suspense, and a terrific showcase for two incredible actors (Bates won the Oscar for her performance). “Misery is alive! Misery is alive! Oh, this whole house is going to be full of romance! Ooooh, I’m going to put on my Liberace records!”
