Tuesday Couch Potatoes

The movie that I will feature for TCP will be 1991 Robert's movie. I was like 19 or 20 when I watched this in HPlaza and I still remember it clearly to date. I was with my cousin and we got lost on our way home. We stopped by at Snap Shot and had a blast at the studio. Funny! Oh, I need to stop right here for I might blog more about what we have had that day. So much for this. lol.

Well, my entry for this week is "Sleeping with the Enemy."
And here's the plot.

Julia Roberts starred in this thriller movie about a battered wife stalked by her abusive husband. Roberts plays Laura Burney, the wife of rich investment counselor, martin (Patrick Bergin). Martin appreciates appreciates his wife as a trophy, but at home he abuses her for not keeping the house as clean as he would like it. The verbal abuse descends into physical violence --so much so that Laura decides to disappear rather than live a life under Martin as a brutalized slave. Laura fakes her own death by drowning, and relocates to Cedar Falls, Iowa, where she changes her name to Sara Waters. She starts a relationship with her friendly Iowa neighbor Ben Woodward (Kevin Anderson) but her happiness is short-lived. Martin has discovered that Laura has staged her drowning and is coming to Iowa to reclaim his possession. ~ Paul Brenner, All Movie Guide. source

enjoyed Sleeping with the Enemy too mommy nuts. although i am not really a fan of movies that feature violence against women, i just had to watch this since julia is in it. pansin mo, dati, drama at suspense-thriller genres nya.. tapos nung 2000 onwards, more on lighter, romantic comedy roles na?

thanks for joining us this week dear. next week, we'll feature our favorite year 2000 film. till then, take care and happy tcp! btw, already your TCP link to the MckLinky. hugs!

Oh-oh what a story. I mean it's not uncommon but when it's Julia acting, it becomes kinda something else. Good pick.
