THE SUICIDE CLUB is the story of what happens when bored, drugged-out rich kids decide to dress up and play games. Mariel Hemingway stars as an heiress, Sasha Michaels, who has been teetering on the edge of a mental breakdown ever since the suicide of her brother. Her friend Cam (Lenny

Henry) takes her to a private costume party in a gothic mansion, where the guests play a card game in which the winner must swallow a poisonous drink. Naturally, Sasha wants to play. Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's The Suicide Club, the film is almost unwatchable because of director James

Bruce's decision to have his characters speak in a literary English more suited to the period of Stevenson's story than to the present. A low-budget exercise in literary adaptation, THE SUICIDE CLUB rates attention only because it stars Hemingway in a less-than-noteworthy performance.
