Track 29

Nicolas Roeg's playfully beguiling mystery stars Theresa Russell as a bored young woman trapped in a loveless and childless marriage with model train and S&M enthusiast Christopher Lloyd. The woman's life is changed when she is (possibly) visited by a young British stranger (Gary Oldman) who claims that he is her abandoned-at-birth son. Is he a con man or prodigal son, a real person or only the figment of her rapidly deteriorating mind? This bizarre, darkly funny tale of romantic obsession written by Dennis Potter.
