David Mamet directed this screen version of his controversial two-character stage drama about a frustrated, self-involved male Professor (William H. Macy) whose connection with a troubled, vulnerable female student (Debra Eisenstadt) has dire consequences. Accused of being contrived and anti-feminist, this is perhaps a lesser Mamet, but more complex than its detractors have given it credit for.
