New Yorker Bridget Fonda takes in a deceptively sweet and shy roommate (Jennifer Jason Leigh) in this thriller. Fonda, on the rebound from a soured relationship, quickly forms a sisterly bond with her new co-inhabitant. But things turn macabre when Leigh becomes delusional and obsessed with mimicking Fonda.

The setup and actresses are effective, but the film degenerates into standard fare. Steven Weber also stars in this Barbet Schroeder-directed entry. Rated R.
