In this taut New Orleans-set thriller, Bujold stars as the no-nonsense head of a rape prevention center who becomes involved with hard-boiled homicide detective (with a handcuff fetish) Clint Eastwood, who is investigating a string of sex crimes in the French Quarter. With an unexpected element of psychological depth, the film marks an ambitious advance for Eastwood’s previous cop personae—kink and all.
