Hear No Evil starring D.B. Sweeney, Marlee Matlin, Martin Sheen
One man's twisted dream of happiness becomes a woman's worst nightmare in this high-wire psychological thriller starring Gina Gershon (Bound), Sean Patrick Flanery (Powder, Suicide Kings) and MichaelBiehn (The Rock, The Art of War). Gershon is Dr. Lila Colletti, a dedicated psychiatrist who helps dangerous criminals find their way back into society. But when Lila's estranged husband is mysteriously murdered, one of her patients crosses the borderline between fact and fantasy. Now, he'll do anything to win Lila's love. And he won't take no for an answer.
Jillian (Marlee Matlin), a physical trainer, is unknowingly given a valuable stolen coin. The theft of the coin was planned by a corrupt and sadistic police lieutenant (Martin Sheen) who needs the coin to fund his retirement, and he pursues Jillian in order to get it. Director Robert Greenwald, who also directed The Burning Bed, does a good job in showing the victim's courage and resourcefulness in her desperate situation. Matlin is good as Jillian, and does not use her deafness as a crutch to generate sympathy but portrays Jillian as an independent and strong woman. Hear No Evil is a well-crafted mystery thriller.
A deaf woman becomes the target of a ruthless and corrupt cop.
