This version has a strong cast, but the direction fails to do the tale justice. Oddly, it keeps the action, and the guilt-ridden madness, at a distance. The audience is not engaged in the fierce battle between conscience and desire.

Murder is never easy, rarely solves anything and almost invariably comes with disastrous side effects. For Therese Raquin, the orphaned dreamer hauntingly played by Keira Knightley in an admirable Broadway debut, it is her ruin.

First Nighter: Keira Knightley as Emile Zola's 'Therese Raquin,' Chekhov's 'Seagull' Countrified as 'Songbird,' 'Catch the Butcher' Not a Great Catch

Everyone connected with Therese Raquin seems to know what a powerhouse it is as a portrait of 19th-century middle-class French malaise. It's a shame that Cabnet hasn't quite propelled that past the footlights.

In her Broadway debut, Keira Knightley brilliantly embodies this tormented monster -- the titular protagonist/antagonist of Thérèse Raquin. She fumes, and rages, and withdraws, and you can watch her psychological evolution from stifled wife to impassioned mistress to haunted murderer.

Charlie Stratton's In Secret is based on Emile Zola's Therese Raquin -- but were it set in a different time period, it could have been a film noir like Double Indemnity or The Postman Always Rings Twice.

Movie Review: Stoker

Marshall Fine

Chan-wook Park's Stoker is audaciously, in-your-face creepy and exhilarating in a way few films have been since David Lynch's Blue Velvet. Because it's not just the creepiness -- but the way Park gets you involved in his world so that you can't look away.
