After splitting with her boyfriend, pragmatic New Yorker Allie (Bridget Fonda) advertises for a new flatmate. Her ad is answered by the shy but thoughtful Hedy (Jennifer Jason Leigh), the perfect lodger. But as Hedy's behaviour becomes more and more intrusive, it's clear that she doesn't just want to be part of Ally's life - she wants the whole thing. A coolly executed campaign of psychosis and suspense, this one of the most effective thrillers of the 90s. Try getting through the climax without yelping.
