THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE
1992, Buena Vista Pictures, 110 min, USA, Dir: Curtis Hanson

After a sexual harassment lawsuit against her obstetrician husband destroys her life, Rebecca De Mornay decides to return the favor, working as a nanny for the woman (Annabella Sciorra) she considers responsible as she engineers her revenge. De Mornay is chilling as every parent’s worst nightmare in this box office hit, and Julianne Moore leaves an equally strong impression with one of her first big-screen performances.


FATAL ATTRACTION
1987, Paramount, 119 min, USA, Dir: Adrian Lyne

“I'm not gonna be ignored!” This crackling, tension-packed thriller is set into motion when a married attorney (Michael Douglas) has what he thinks is a one-night stand with a publishing executive (Glenn Close), who becomes the most vengeful “other woman” you’ve ever seen. Alternately sexy and scary, this box office smash benefits from a strong supporting performance by Anne Archer and an unforgettably nerve-jolting finale.
