Extremities

In a riveting performance that stunned critics and audiences alike, Farrah Fawcett is the heart and soul of this edge-of-your-seat suspense drama about a woman who turns the tables on a would-be rapist. Nominated for a Best Actress Golden Globe, Fawcett is gives the performance of her career in this taut and powerful drama. After narrowly escaping an attempted rape, Marjorie (Fawcett) is haunted by the fact that her attacker (James Russo) knows where she lives. But when he appears on her doorstep and subjects her to a non-stop barrage of physical and mental assaults, Marjorie manages to disarm and capture him. Filled with fear and hostility, she conspires with her roommates to take the law into her own hands. But as her rage consumes her, Marjorie shocks her friends with a proposal that challenges the perilously thin line between justice and vengeance.
