The director of the 1985 hit “Three Men and a Cradle” is back with this surprising tale of feminist consciousness-raising in the guise of a fast-paced thriller. A well-off middle-aged couple witness a young prostitute being beaten but do nothing to help. The next day the wife, feeling guilty, seeks out and befriends the victim, eventually abandoning her husband and son.
