||The disappearance of a young married woman in a small community focuses attention on the local clairvoyant, to whom, in a sequence of macabre revelations, the location of her body, and the identity of the killer is revealed.
||Scenes of domestic violence, some extreme. Some sexually explicit phrases and some nudity in an extremely unpleasant context. Also images of a decomposing body.
||It seemed as if some attempt had been made to “sex up” the script – literally, but it rolled along OK, and the cast did their best with it. It was nice to see Gary Cole in a minor role.
