Love it or hate it, RECKLESS is a distinctive gloss on "Candide," casting waif Mia Farrow adrift against a sinister American landscape. Written and directed by the team of Craig Lucas and Norman Rene (LONGTIME COMPANION, PRELUDE TO A KISS), it's a dark comedy rooted in an off-kilter

vision of modern family life. Farrow plays a blissfully contented housewife whose Christmas Eve is ruined when her husband (Tony Goldwin) confesses he's hired a hitman to kill her. She flees into the pristine suburban snow and is rescued by sympathetic social worker Scott Glenn and his paraplegic,

deaf-mute wife Mary-Louise Parker. Once again, Rachel discovers things aren't as they seem, and, after further grotesqueries, winds up running so hard for her life that she forgets where she came from. Farrow is in just about every scene, and her childlike naivete is by turns irritating and

endearing. But the supporting cast -- which includes Eileen Brennan as a tough-love nun and Giancarlo Esposito as a manic game-show host -- helps to keep this twisted odyssey on its off-beat course.
