Summary Novelistic in scope, grandeur and impact, and featuring three brilliant performances, it's a gripping psychological study of thwarted love, ambition and obsession, depicting a love triangle between an aspiring young writer, his childhood neighbour and her mysterious and handsome new friend. Lee's teasing and noirish film creates a tantalising mood of uncertainty and complexity, with the story's themes of class, family, rage and lust rising feverishly to the surface.
