I was unaware that this film was based upon a true story so judged it purely on its merits. The subject matter of a beautiful model disfigured by a rejected suitor is pretty unsettling. Somehow the soft focus photography and background muzak never quite work with the subject matter.
Kirk Baltz plays the psychotic stalker well, and his motivation is well observed.However the attack is shown briefly at the start, reprised two thirds of the way through the film and then the courtroom drama becomes the final act. The balancing of this does not work and might better have been told from the courtroom.
Cheryl Pollack makes a decent fist of the title role, but ultimately this is formulaic routine fare that never rises above that standard.
