Jonathan Kaplan directs this contemporary drama about two women (Claire Danes and Kate Beckinsale) who are caught up in a series of nightmarish events while travelling in Southeast Asia. Bill Pullman is a lawer who works to free them of drug smuggling charges. Lou Diamond Phillips also stars.

Capsule Review: A depressing (and unrealistic at times) cautionary tale about naive travellers. This story was done better, and with more emotional impact, in last year’s Return to Paradise.
