A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I watched this interesting horror film with Leelee Sobieski last night.  She plays an art teacher and recovering victim of child sexual abuse who is hired as a nanny by a rich uncle who inherited two kids he didn't want when his brother and wife died in an air crash.  She and the kids live on a big estate out in the middle of the English countryside, and while there she becomes convinced that the evil ghosts of the kids'  former nanny and her handyman/lover are stalking the children.  But as the movie progresses, she (and the viewer) face the question of whether the ghosts are real, or if she is slowly going out of her mind . . .

I liked this film on some levels.  Sobieski is attractive and a talented actress (and if you're wondering, she teases a lot but never shows any frontal nudity, I think she must have signed a "no nipple" contract at some point) who gives a convincing portrait of a young woman teetering on the edge of sanity.  The movie's only other adult main character is the rich uncle's executive assistant, who comes across as a cold witch at first, then winds up having a (largely unseen) lesbian affair with Sobieski.  I will say that the end of this film is one of the most genuinely disturbing things I have ever seen.  I don't want to give it away, but it is worth watching the movie, which is a bit slow in places, for this rather unsuspected climax.

I'm happy to be able to prove you wrong Indy.
Leelee was nude on film on 2 occasions as of this date.
L' Idole in 2002
and Hercules from 2005.

As I mentioned in my introduction post, I spent a lot of time on celebrity boards specializing in exposure of this nature.
I may not be good for much, but I can provide you with info on boobies on film.   TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
