Synopsis

Triple-bill of dark thrillers. In 'Secret Window' (2004), Johnny Depp stars as famed mystery writer Mort Rainey who, following an acrimonious separation from his wife Amy (Maria Bello), takes some time out at his remote lake house. Shortly after his arrival, he is unexpectedly confronted by a dangerous stranger named John Shooter (John Turturro). Claiming that Rainey has plagiarised his short story, changing only the ending, the psychotic Shooter demands justice. When Shooter's fearful demands turn to threats - and then murder - Rainey turns to a private detective, Ken Karsch (Charles S. Dutton) for help - but he soon begins to wonder if he can trust anyone or anything. In 'Panic Room' (2002), when Meg Altman (Jodie Foster) and her teenage daughter Sarah (Kristen Stewart) move into a luxury Manhattan townhouse they have no plans to use the ultra-secure 'panic room' installed by the previous occupant. But on their first night in their new home, three burglars break-in with plans to steal the money they believe is still concealed in the panic room's safe. Meg and Sarah then quickly take refuge in the secure chamber, locking themselves in and watching the burglars through the surveillance system; what follows is a tense cat-and-mouse game, as the criminals attempt to unlock the room and the mother and daughter try to signal for help. Finally, in 'Enough' (2002), Slim (Jennifer Lopez) works in a San Francisco diner with her friend Ginny (Juliette Lewis). Several years later and Slim is married to Mitch (Bill Campbell), a customer from the diner. The pair appear to have everything - a lovely house, a daughter and a comfortable life. When she discovers that Mitch has been seeing other women, he resorts to physical abuse and Slim realises that she must escape with her daughter. She must transform herself from the hunted to the hunter.
